SSN Interdisciplinary Grant: Call for Applications for 2022 Round

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 Establishment Grant and Interdisciplinary Project Incubator.

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 aim of our grants program is to develop interdisciplinary projects that bring together STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines and HASS (Humanities and Social Science) disciplines to generate external grants and other outcomes.

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 in teams. The Incubator will provide up to $12,000 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 Deakin SSN Interdisciplinary Establishment Grant has been developed to support proposals for activities by Deakin University early and mid-career academic researchers (EMCARs) aimed at establishing new interdisciplinary research collaborations. The scheme will provide up to $3,000 for activities that provide opportunities to develop new, interdisciplinary collaborative research relationships and projects.
