ARC Centres of Excellence are prestigious foci of expertise through which high-quality researchers collaboratively maintain and develop Australia’s international standing in research areas of national priority. ARC Centres of Excellence involve significant collaboration which allows the complementary research resources of universities, publicly funded research organisations, other research bodies, governments and businesses to be concentrated to support outstanding research.
Funding & Duration
The University of Adelaide has specific expectations on the level of cash support to be included in ARC CoE proposals. ARC Centres are funded for up to seven (7) years. The University of Adelaide will support involvement in high-quality, competitive applications.
The next ARC Centre of Excellence (CoE) round will commence in the first quarter of 2015, with funding to commence in 2017.
Expressions of Interest (EOI) & University Deadlines
University of Adelaide is undertaking an internal EOI process prior to the opening of the ARC Centre of Excellence 2017 round.
