Glasgow - Partnership Collaboration Awards (PCA)

The University of Sydney (USyd) and the University of Glasgow (Glasgow) have identified each other as strategic partners to foster deep collaborations in research and education. The USyd-Glasgow 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.

In this round of the PCA, applicants are encouraged to submit funding proposals for innovative and
sustainable programs built around collaborative research linking USyd and Glasgow. Proposals for learning and teaching initiatives may also be considered if included as 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.

Preference will be given to teams which include PhD or masters by research students, postdocs, Early and Mid-Career Researchers (EMCR) and researchers on Sabbatical Leave rather than simply one-to-one research projects. Projects which are multidisciplinary in nature are encouraged.

In this round, up to five proposals will be funded (each with two Chief Investigators; one from USyd and one from Glasgow). Each successful proposal may receive up to the equivalent of AUD 20,000 (£11,150) from each institution for a total of AUD 40,000 (£22,300).
