The University of Melbourne and the University of Manchester have established a research fund to deepen and extend collaborative research links between the universities. Grants will be awarded for collaborative projects that may include, but are not limited to, symposia, workshops and staff exchanges.

Collaborations supported under this scheme should lead to external funding proposals that will support the next phase of research.

The fund is targeted to areas of overlapping/common interest between universities. At Manchester, the priority areas are the research beacons as well as education, cities, digital humanities, and arts and heritage. At Melbourne, the focus is on the grand challenges, research institutes and hallmark research initiatives.

Other areas of mutual interest from researchers will also be considered. Grants will be awarded up to a maximum of £5,000 from Manchester and AUD $10,000 from Melbourne for total funding of approximately AUD $20,000 per project. Six awards will be granted this round, including two allocated to the Melbourne School of Engineering. Each institution will pay funds directly to its researchers.
