Applications are open for the Australia-China Joint Research Centres and will close 14 September 2015.
Programme guidelines and application instructions are now available from http://science.gov.au/acsrf and will assist to complete the application form.
Information sessions will be held in major capital cities in August 2015.
Further information will be published on the ACSRF website once dates and venues are confirmed and will be provided directly to the contact person submitting the request to the Department for the Valid Registration Number.
An Eligible Research Organisation (ERO) may only submit one JRC application as the leading ERO per round. An ERO that has applied for funding for a JRC may be a collaborating partner in another JRC.
The Minister for Industry and Science, the Hon Ian Macfarlane announced the next round of the Australia-China Joint Research Centres (JRCs) and priority areas for the round in a media release on 2 July 2015.
It is expected six new centres will receive support under the ACSRF, with each to receive up to $1 million over three years to further research collaboration between Australia and China.
