MQ Research Acceleration Scheme
The 2023 Macquarie University Research Acceleration Scheme [MQRAS] is designed to seed outstanding projects that have a high potential to attract external funding.
Applicants can apply for funding up to $50,000 to cover research project costs for a maximum period of 12 months. The intention of this scheme is to enable research productivity and to accelerate opportunities that will result in increases in HERDC-reportable research income (external research income) in the short term (12-24 months). It is expected that awardees of MQRAS funding will apply for external research funding within 12 months of completing their MQRAS project.
There will be one round in 2023 with a maximum of 14 projects funded across campus.
Please ensure you discuss your application with your relevant Head of Department/School and Faculty Research Office. Faculty contacts:
