September 12, 2017

Griffith University and Simon Fraser University have signed a Memorandum of Understanding which aims to expand cooperation, exchange of ideas and research collaborations between the two institutions in the areas of drug discovery, environmental sciences and environmental planning, forest ecology, forest management and climate change adaptation, behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, mental health and addiction, public health, bioinformatics and genomics, Big Data, criminology, business, tourism, musicology, and such other areas as the parties shall agree.

The Collaborative Travel Grants will normally be awarded in the range of $5,000 to $15,000 and should be directed principally at travel costs.

Applications must be in one or more of the disciplinary areas listed above.

Applications which meet the below criteria will be assessed favourably:

  • Collaborations that are already established and producing research outputs
  • Proposals that have leveraged other sources of funds that can enhance the scope and impact of the proposed initiative
  • Applications which include PhD student and/or early career researcher mobility

Each application must include a team of researchers with at least one researcher from each institution, both of whom will have continuing academic positions in the year of award. Teams are encouraged to include postgraduate students, early career researchers as well as more experienced and senior researchers.

Only one application will be accepted for each project and should be submitted to the institution of the first named Chief Investigator.  The application form available for download here and must include a copy of the CV for each of the team members.

Applicants from Simon Fraser University should submit an electronic application and SFU Signature Sheet to the Office of Research Services at by November 1, 2017.
