Engineering Conference Support Scheme
The cross-disciplinary conference travel support scheme is designed to assist academics at Level A, B and C in the school (excluding research centre members) to present one or more papers at a reputable conference. The maximum allocation per person per year is $2000 for an international conference and $1000 for an Australian conference. [more info]
Griffith School of Engineering: Theme Seed Funding 2018
Cross-disciplinary projects: Maximum allocation is $15,000 per project:
This scheme aims to encourage cross-disciplinary research activities within each of the three engineering research themes. Another aim is to boot-strap collaborative research partnerships led by academic staff at levels A, B and C in the Griffith School of Engineering and not a member of another research centre or institute. Using rules and guidelines are similar to the New Career Grants, academics in the schoolfrom different disciplines of engineering are asked to suggest projects based one of the research themes. The researchers leading previously funded under this scheme are ineligible to apply. [more info]
Engineering High Impact Factor Journal Publication Incentive Scheme
Through this scheme, the School of Engineering seeks:
- To gain recognition within and outside the university as being a leading research school.
- To increase the number of citation of published work.
- To encourage researchers to publish some papers giving a broader perspective of their work and the importance of their research in society. [more info]
IAP/ Thesis Funded Internal Projects
The aim of this scheme is to provide additional laboratory support for high-achieving students (undergraduate and course-work master’s degree) undertaking a research project in the school which can support the overall direction of Research Themesin the School. In additionthis scheme is aimed at encouraging high achieving studentto seek to undertake a higher degree in the School. [more info]
Research Technical Support
Griffith School of Engineering (GSE) has where possible supported research through its technical staff at the Gold Coast as a second priority to teaching. The space in G09 is currently used to support both research and teaching activities. Engineering academics who are currently linked to other research centres such as; QMNC, IIIS, EFRI, ARI and etc. have technical support resources supplied by the relevant centres. This arrangement needs reviewing with the advent of Cities Research Centre which seeks to engage experimental researchers in GSE and this presents the challenge of shared facilities from the point of view of technical support, equipment, space and health and safety requirements.
