Global Strategy and Partnerships Seed Funding Scheme is now closed

9 September 2019

All UQ professional staff, academics and researchers are invited to apply for the UQ Global Strategy and Partnerships Seed Funding Scheme – an initiative established to assist faculties, institutes and units to pursue activities that strengthen the impact of UQ's global network. 

Round two 2019 was open to initiatives in UQ’s priority countries: USA, UK, Germany, China, Indonesia, India, Brazil and Singapore, as well as UQ's emerging priority countries Vietnam, Chile and Canada. In addition, initiatives to expand collaboration with UQ’s premier and emerging premier partners will be prioritised.

The scheme aims to:

  • provide financial support for innovative joint activities with strategic partners
  • enable the pursuit of key opportunities and nurturing of partner networks that have been identified as having the potential to advance UQ’s strategic objectives within priority countries
  • develop ongoing mutually beneficial education and research outcomes with individuals and organisations that raise UQ's global profile
  • support UQ faculties, schools and institutes to launch new projects and promote innovative, creative initiatives that further UQ’s Global Strategy.

The Global Strategy Partnerships Seed Funding Scheme Report showcases successful applications, for reference. All initiatives must demonstrate a clear emphasis on engagement outcomes and must align with UQ's Global Strategy.

More information on the Scheme, as well as guidelines and application forms, are available online or from the Global Engagement and Entrepreneurship Office (
