USyd-CUHK Partnership Collaboration Awards



(For CUHK and USyd faculty)

Deadline: 30 August 2019, Friday

The University of Sydney (USyd) and The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) have been partners since 2006. Both universities have identified each other as strategic partners to foster deep collaborations in research and education. The USyd-CUHK Partnership Collaboration Awards (PCA) have been established to facilitate and support joint initiatives that will strengthen the two universities’ strategic priorities as well as develop multi-disciplinary cutting-edge research to create academic and societal impact.

Applicants are encouraged to submit funding proposals for innovative and sustainable programs built around collaborative research linking USyd and CUHK. Proposals for learning and teaching initiatives may also be considered if they are part of a larger collaborative research proposal.

Proposals should be sustainable in the long term with a plan for engagement that includes leveraging external funding and publication outputs.

In this round, up to five proposals will be funded (each with two Chief Investigators; one from USyd and one from CUHK). Each successful proposal will receive up to AUD 10,000 from USyd and HKD 60,000 from CUHK for a total of approximately AUD 20,000/HKD 120,000.
