The EOI process for ARC LIEF grants is now open, and will close at 5pm on Wednesday 8 February 2017. All EOI’s submitted State-wide from Victoria-based universities will be discussed at a meeting in mid-February which is attended by the DVCR’s or their delegates. Only those EOI teams who receive approval from this meeting will be supported to submit a full ARC LE18 application.
Monash-led Bids – Internal Cash CommitmentFor Monash-led bids, we would expect that the overall cash contribution from the university would total between 40% and 60% of the total request for funds and that this would likely comprise one third from the faculty, one third from the relevant School/Department and one third from Central. To secure this internal funding, it is important that School/Department/Faculty signs off on their commitment (thus confirming the strategic importance of the request) before any EoI can be lodged and importantly, before any potential partners are asked to support the application.
Externally-led Bids – Monash Cash CommitmentFor non-led bids there needs to be signed approval by the lead Institution before sign off by the relevant School/Department and Faculty regardless of contributions.
Internal Cash Contribution Sign-OffSign-off on internal funding sources is achieved via the LE18 Monash Cash Contribution form (attached).
