Funding Research

Design funding mandates to address relevant trends, opportunities and constraints and then fund relevant projects

Let Your Funding Criteria Frame Research Effort

The framing tool in the Design Studio support research proposal design in hypothesis or problem solving mode. If you have a market that you would like to see addressed with research, build a proposal that can be completed by researchers from academia or industry in furtherance of that objective. Alternatively, discover proposals that have been designed in your field of interest and express interest in backing them.

Build Your Compatibility Matrix

Discover relevant research proposals, partners, resources and participants by reference to your research vision, values and funding criteria. Jurisdictional and organisation level constraints are automatically filtered so that you are investing your time in evaluating opportunities with prospects of success.

Find the Research You Want to Fund

Create a funding mandate in the Resources Centre and use it to identify and attract eligible proposals. Mandates can be discoverable by others, or privately maintained so that you control the volume of activity they generate. Your mandate profile will be used to signal appetite in your field.

Transaction Structures that Accommodate Diverse Interests

The Transaction Toolkit supports the assessment and structuring of research partnering agreements. Use them to address issues that protect commercialisation opportunities, support integrity and quality efforts, and accommodate the objectives held by academic partners, industry teams, co-funders, participants or regulators.
