Faculty of Eningeering and IT internal funding schemes
Faculty of Engineering and IT Blue Sky Research Grant
The Faculty of Engineering and IT Blue Sky Research Grant seeks to provide Faculty researchers with the opportunity to explore research that is curiosity-driven, inquisitive and dynamic.
We are looking for big bright ideas – these do not have to be research ideas that are already ready for external bodies or industry parties, but should have the potential generate social impact, publish in leading journals, generate IP, create commercialisation or evolve into large scale projects for external funding within the next two years.
We are particularly keen to receive applications which target the Faculty’s existent and emerging research strengths including cyber security, energy and environment, and additive manufacturing.
Faculty of Engineering and IT Data Arena Research Exhibit Grant
The Faculty of Engineering and IT Data Arena Research Exhibit Grant provides funding to visualise and showcase research through the use of the Data Arena OR the Faculty Data Arena Research Exhibit Grant is aimed at providing funding to showcase research that benefits from visualization in the UTS Data Arena.
Faculty of Engineering and IT Tech Lab Blue Sky Research Grant
The Faculty of Engineering and IT Tech Lab Blue Sky Research Grant aims to provide researchers with a platform to explore curiosity-driven research and leverage the new facilities at Tech Lab.
We are calling for big ideas that are ambitious, daring and boundary-pushing. These do not have to be research ideas that are ready for immediate funding from external grant bodies or industry parties but should have the potential generate social impact, publish in leading journals, create commercialisation opportunities or generate IP while making use of the facilities at Tech Lab.
