Infrastructure boost for University of Adelaide research

Thursday, 4 August 2016

Research at the University of Adelaide will receive a significant boost with the launch this week of a new scheme to provide researchers with additional infrastructure needed for continued world-class research.

The University of Adelaide Research Infrastructure Scheme will provide $6 million over the next three years for research equipment, infrastructure and access to national and international facilities.

The scheme is one of a number of initiatives being supported under an additional $50 million of University investment over three years for its new research strategy, Adelaide Research for Impact.

“Our new strategy seeks to position us to respond well to new challenges, including the Australian Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda,” says Professor Mike Brooks, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research).

“The University has improved strongly in international rankings in recent times and enhanced infrastructure will help maintain this momentum.”

The Research Infrastructure Scheme follows on from recently launched funding schemes for early and mid-career research fellowships, additional PhD scholarships and interdisciplinary research projects.

Further initiatives will be launched downstream in support of innovation, incubation and global research connectivity.
