ECM Faculty Focus
The UWA Research Collaboration Awards (URCA) provides funding to support new and developing initiatives that will expand the University's external research collaborations both nationally and internationally.
The overall goal of this program is to support collaborations that will lead to increased cross-institutional ties, with enhanced opportunities for UWA staff and research students in terms of research publications, research grants, and research training.
Applicants are encouraged to submit funding applications for innovative and sustainable programs built around collaborative research, linking the University with the world's leading academic institutions and leading to high quality ISI-indexed outputs, grant collaborations, and collaborative supervisions.
International linkages with the Worldwide Universities Network (http://www.wun.ac.uk/) are particularly encouraged.
A maximum of $20,000 will be available for each successful project, with the majority of successful projects receiving funding of between $10,000-$15,000.
Guidelines and Application form are available at: http://www.research.uwa.edu.au/page/155975
