Partnership engagement grants

If you are developing an ARC Linkage proposal and looking for an industry partner, the City of Melbourne is now providing annual funding as a collaborative industry partner organization to research institutions leading Australian Research Council [ARC] Linkage project grants.

The City of Melbourne are interested in discussing potential research and development projects for the scheme that enable a direct contribution to supporting our Council’s 2013 – 2017 goals of supporting Melbourne as:

A city for people

A creative city

A prosperous city

A knowledge city

An eco-city

A connected city

Our key fields of research interest include: but are not limited to; the Built environment and design, urban planning, engineering, knowledge initiatives, sustainability, local government, capital cities and human society.

The funding provides financial, reputational and in-kind support for quality projects that foster research excellence, that enhance expertise and information sharing, and the delivery of long term benefits and new knowledge across the partnership.

Any joint research proposals undergo a selection process by the City of Melbourne [Research Branch], with approved projects required to align with the next available ARC Linkage Projectround submission date.

The City of Melbourne may waive all (or part of) the assessment process where a proposal has been previously approved by the City of Melbourne and has been unsuccessful in gaining ARC funding, but requires revisions.

The City of Melbourne will NOT consider the following proposals:

Proposals which have already been funded through other City of Melbourne programs or activities, another grant, funding or and sponsorship program.

Projects where one or more Partner Organisation is seeking expert external assistance outside their own organisation, in order to develop specific applications (for example: contracted research will not be supported)
