CUHK - Partnership Collaboration Awards (PCA)

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 with potential for high 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 CUHK.

  • Proposals for learning and teaching initiatives may also be considered if 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 graduate/postgraduate 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 5 proposals will be funded (each with two Chief Investigators; one from Sydney and one from CUHK) and will receive up to the equivalent of AUD 10,000 from each institution for a total of AUD 20,000. Funding is available for 12 months from the date of the award.
