Funding available for short-term research

The next round of funding is available for the CRC’s Tactical Research Fund, established to support short-duration research projects to meet the near term needs of Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC partners.

The fund will support projects that address short-term issues for the sector and have national significance. Applications must be made by end-user partners of the CRC.

The first round of short-term projects was recently announced with five new projects set to commence.

Applications for the second round of the funding are now open and will close on 30 June 2017. Up to $250,000 is available.

Project proposals can be extensions of existing research projects and represent continuations of previously funded CRC projects, or represent new research initiatives, including scoping studies, synthesis studies and literature reviews.

The funds must be used to support CRC research partners or CRC end-user partners to undertake the projects. Outcomes of projects must be made available to all CRC partners, and should published on the CRC website.
