The first of two funding rounds in 2015 for collaborations between Monash University and Warwick is now open.
Alliance Seed Fund: open to academic staff to support development of new, strategically aligned education and research initiatives with high potential that combine complementary aspects of each institution towards novel and sustainable outcomes.
Alliance Strategic Development Scheme: open to academic staff to support modest, strategically aligned initiatives that build on existing Monash Warwick collaboration and/or have the potential to elevate the institutions to international leadership within a defined academic field. Proposals are eligible for Alliance funding until December 2016 and may, for example, involve staff exchange leading to major advance in a research area, or a form of teaching and learning collaboration such as shared curriculum or learning objects, or joint module development or another form of collaboration.
Alliance Student-Led Activity Scheme: open to students from undergraduate to PhD level to support activities that integrate students and transfer knowledge and innovation across institutions.
