KTP Visiting Fellow Program at UTS
About the program
Given the current uncertainty around international travel, the Key Technology Partnerships (KTP) Visiting Fellow Program application round has been postponed until further notice. In the interim, we are dedicated to raising awareness of the collaborative opportunities between UTS researchers and their academic counterparts at our key technology partners through a series of online information sessions, workshops, and one-to-one discussions.
We encourage UTS and KTP academics to continue to engage with the program, to build strong partnerships and collaborate on publications. Academics are welcome to explore joint applications for external grants and co-supervision of PhD students under the collaborative doctoral degree agreements.
It is through shared international interests that academics can collaborate on impactful research and contribute to the discovery and development of solutions to a wide range of global issues. Given the current restrictions, it is imperative that research partnerships, both old and new, continue to be nurtured, resulting in resilient connections and strong future proposals when travel is once again feasible.
Please contact Ana Ruiz email@example.com for more information about the KTP program.
The program’s objective is to provide opportunities for long-term research engagement between UTS and the KTPs.
Academics participating in the KTP Visiting Fellow program are expected to:
- Develop joint academic publications
- Identify opportunities for co-supervision of PhD students
- Apply for external research funding
- Broaden collaborative connections with other academics at UTS and the KTP
- Present at public seminars
- By the end of the visit, submit a 12–24 month plan of engagement and collaborative work; including details and timeline of joint publications, co-supervision of PhD students and grant applications in Australia and/or overseas
Duration of stay
Appointments are generally expected to be two to four weeks in duration. If funding is sought for a period shorter or longer than this, a clear explanation should be included with the proposed visit time.
Visiting fellows and UTS host academics are required to read and abide by the KTP Visiting Fellow Program Guidelines. This document contains important information about the Australian visa, human resources invitation letter, health insurance, travel expenses, airfares and accommodation for visiting fellows. It also includes a step by step checklist to guide visiting fellows and UTS host academics through the steps involved before, during and after the visit.
The KTP team and/or their host faculty will advise visiting fellows on where to find suitable accommodation during their stay at UTS. It is expected that visiting fellows will reside in the vicinity of Broadway or another area close to UTS during the fellowship period and will participate fully in the itinerary prepared by their host faculty and the KTP team.
