Catalysing Research

The Alliance seeks to catalyse excellent and mutually beneficial research across all scales of collaboration. Reflecting the comprehensive nature of both universities, collaboration has been pursued in each of our four faculties with over 300 staff at Warwick engaging with their colleagues at Monash over recent years. We provide support for research projects in highly productive niches and also to seed fund smaller scale research and networking activities.

BacteriaSince 2012 over 70 research projects have benefitted from Alliance seed funding. These projects have generated an impressive range of outcomes from external funding and publications to the establishment of new international policy networks. Recent projects approved for funding cover a diversity of subjects from 'Parenting strategies for parents of youth engaged in youth mental health services' to 'Characterisation of novel antibiotic biosynthetic pathways'.

The comprehensive support for catalysing and growing research collaboration extends beyond seed funding to include adjunct and honorary appointments and a visiting fellows scheme to be launched shortly. Capacity building is further enhanced through funding for post doctoral research assistant positions and the Alliance joint PhD program.

Adjunct and Honorary Positions

Our adjunct and honorary appointments scheme facilitates academic collaboration between Monash and Warwick. These appointments recognise the collaborations that have been achieved to date and strengthen the ongoing partnership, creating genuine membership of the partner university's community.
