Quick Response Fund

The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC has established a Quick Response Fund to provide support for researchers to travel to areas affected by natural disasters (bushfire, flood, cyclone, severe storm, earthquake or tsunami) to gain an understanding of the event, the impacts and to capture perishable data. These activities can help to identify significant research questions arising from major natural hazard events and provide a context for developing more extensive research proposals.

Funding support is limited to $2500 (inc. GST) per team for any individual event. Funding is principally designed to reimburse travel-related expenses such as airfares, car rental and accommodation. Minor data collection expenditure may be considered.

Applicants do not need to be current Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC researchers to be eligible. PhD students are eligible to apply for this funding where an understanding of the event directly relates to their PhD studies. Student applications require the endorsement of the primary supervisor.
