Call for projects
The NUW Alliance is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for projects proposed to commence in 2019. This is a two-stage process. Selected applicants may be invited to submit a more detailed proposal in early 2019.
Eligibility to apply
All researchers at the NUW Alliance universities are eligible to submit an EOI.
Each proposal must be certified by a Deputy Vice-Chancellor from at least one of the NUW Alliance universities (Professor Kevin Hall at UoN, Professor Brian Boyle at UNSW and Professor Judy Raper at UOW).
Applications must identify a project lead (applicant) and one co-lead (co-applicant) from each NUW Alliance university named on the application. Researchers can be involved in up to four applications, but can only be a nominated project lead (applicant) or co-lead (co-applicant) in one application.
How applications will be assessed
EOIs will be assessed by the NUW Alliance Management Committee against the following criteria:
a. Alignment with the NUW Alliance vision and goals.
b. Alignment with existing government, industry or community priorities, activity or funding.
c. Quality and feasibility, and the skills and experience of participants.
EOIs must demonstrate collaboration across all the NUW Alliance universities. In very limited cases and for truly exceptional EOIs, consideration will be given to applications that involve only two of the NUW Alliance institutions. A strong justification must be provided.
Participation of a third party (e.g. industry, community, government organisations) is not required, however preference will be given to EOIs that have or will secure third party funding and participation.
