The University of Melbourne (UoM) and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJ) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2008 to foster exchange and research collaboration between the universities. Both Universities affirmed this partnership in November 2012 with an agreement to establish the Joint Research Workshop Grants Program. The program supports UoM and HUJ collaborators to convene a research workshop in Melbourne or Jerusalem.
The program aims to facilitate collaborations that:
- promote knowledge exchange and foster idea development.
- encourage student exchange and academic cooperation.
- enable joint research proposals to external funding agencies.
This bilateral program offers funding of up to $AUD 20,000 per application. There will be two workshops funded in this year's round, one in Melbourne and one at HUJ.
- The UoM Chief Investigator (CI) must hold a permanent or contracted appointment of Academic Level A (6) or higher (minimum 0.5FTE) at the University of Melbourne for the duration of the project.
- University of Melbourne participants should be employed by the University in an academic position or be graduate research students enrolled at UoM.
- Honorary and adjunct academic staff members are not eligible to receive funding under this scheme, although they can fund their own involvement. This includes honorary researchers from the Sir Peter MacCallum Department of Oncology, the Florey Department of Neuroscience and Mental Health, and the Medical Bionics Department.
- Individuals can be CI on only one application per funding round.
