Australian Academy of Sciences: Research Conference Funding 2016-18

The purpose of the Australian Academy of Sciences Research Conference funding is to advance at the most fundamental level of the understanding of the subject, to introduce to Australian research new aspects or directions, and to encourage participation of overseas scientists.

Conferences cover a variety of science disciplines, as outlined under each scheme below:

Boden Research Conferences

Supports a series of small specialist conferences in the biological sciences to enable active research workers in rapidly advancing fields to discuss current advances and problems.

Elizabeth and Frederick White Research Conferences

Supports a series of research conferences in the physical and mathematical sciences related to the solid Earth, the terrestrial oceans, the Earth’s atmosphere, solar-terrestrial science, space sciences
and astronomy.

Fenner Conferences on the Environment

The purpose of these conferences is to bring together those with relevant scientific, administrative and policy expertise to consider current environmental and conservation problems in Australia, thereby contributing to the formation of policies that can alleviate some of these problems.

Funding & Duration

One conference per annum will be funded. A sum of up to $10,000 is offered. The supplementation of this sum is encouraged.

The Academy’s Shine Dome is available free of charge, although caretaking charges apply for weekends and on weekdays from 5 pm, and there is a preference for holding the conference in the Shine Dome unless the location proves unsuitable.

Submission Requirements & Internal Due Date

An Expressions of Intent (EOI) must be submitted directly to the Sponsor by 15 June 2016.

Please forward a copy of your EOI to the Research Branch, accompanied by a signed and completed copy of the University’s Grant Application Cover Sheet.
