University of Adelaide – NC State Starter Grants for Research Collaboration
The strategic partnership between the University of Adelaide (UA) and NC State is a preferred relationship that leverages complementary strengths and trans-disciplinary scholarship to advance research collaboration and academic exchange. UA and NC State are now accepting proposals for the development of research collaboration. Co-funding up to AU$10,000 from UA and the equivalent amount from NC State (approximately US$6,750) per project will be made available for travel and to seed collaboration.
This funding program is designed to provide pump-priming and early contact partner outreach with the expectation that they will lead to more substantive engagement resulting in high-quality outputs. Potential high-quality outputs include international research training for graduate students and/or early-career faculty, the publication of joint papers from collaborative research, or follow-on joint research funding bids.
