Applications now open for SSN grants

The Deakin Science and Society Network is pleased to announce the call for applications for its third annual interdisciplinary grant scheme. Applications are invited from early- and mid-career researchers for the Interdisciplinary Project Incubator Grant.

Applications close on Friday 6 November 5:00pm AEST

The Deakin Science and Society Network (SSN) is committed to supporting science-literate social research and socially-engaged science that makes an impact. It aspires to be an engine for interdisciplinary collaboration at Deakin University.

The Deakin SSN Interdisciplinary Project Incubator has been developed to provide Deakin early and mid-career academic researchers (EMCARs) with resources, tools and training to conduct high quality and impactful interdisciplinary research. The Incubator will provide up to $7,500 of seed funding to each successful applicant, as well as providing mentorship, regular feedback on project development, and assisting in brokering collaborative interdisciplinary relationships. The aim is to develop interdisciplinary projects that bring together STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines and HASS (Humanities and Social Science) disciplines.

Note: the Deakin SSN Interdisciplinary Establishment Grant will not be offered in the 2021 round.
