FWPA call for project funding proposals February 2016
FWPA invites the submission of detailed research proposals for projects commencing from 1 May 2016 addressing published FWPA industry research priorities. Details of current research priorities are available in the series of industry investment plans available from the FWPA website (include link http://www.fwpa.com.au/rd-and-e/investment-plans-and-priorities.html).
Each investment plan provides details of industry outcomes expected from successfully completed projects in addition to guidance regarding the level of available FWPA funding within each priority area. FWPA funding up to 50% of total project costs (cash and in-kind) is available, subject to industry and stakeholder endorsement and co-investment.
Proposals will be evaluated in consultation with FWPA’s industry advisory groups. Preference will be given to proposals demonstrating significant levels of industry support and co-investment as well as clear articulation of research communication and technology transfer/industry adoption strategies and benefit measures.
Completed funding proposals, due by Tuesday 15 March 2016, should be submitted to Chris Lafferty at firstname.lastname@example.org using the form available from the FWPA website (http://www.fwpa.com.au/rde/828-forms.html).
