The current Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Research Programme (ITRP) round opened earlier this month.
The Programme supports university-based researchers and industry to work together to find solutions to issues facing Australian industries, delivering funds to Industrial Transformation Research Hubs and Industrial Transformation Research Centre.
The Industrial Transformation Priorities are priority research areas identified by the ARC and are updated with each funding round. The current priorities for funding commencing in 2017 include industrial-led research in Oil, Gas and Energy Resource.
The deadline for submissions is 15 December 2016.
Companies are encouraged to engage their university partners in a discussion to identify possible opportunities for support: The ITRP is an industry-led research program that delivers maximum benefit when industry partners are leading the scientific challenges.
