The Office of Global Engagement is now accepting proposals for this year’s round of the Research Starter Grants between NC State and the University of Adelaide in Australia. The funding is available to faculty or staff to enhance research collaboration and academic exchange between the universities.
The joint starter grants are designed to spur new research collaborations, with the expectation that funded projects will lead to more substantive engagement. Potential high-quality outputs include international research training for graduate students or early-career faculty, publication of joint papers from collaborative research, or follow-on joint research funding bids. The priority areas for funding this year are:
- Defense, cyber, and space
- Agriculture and food security
- Global/One Health (human, animal, and environment)
- Materials and chemical engineering
Co-funding up to AU$10,000 from the University of Adelaide and the equivalent amount from NC State (approximately US$6,750) per project will be made available for travel and to seed collaboration.
The deadline for submissions is Oct. 31, 2019. View the full request for proposals and apply.
