Emory and UQ have partnered to establish a Collaborative Partnership Research Grant through Emory’s Halle Institute for Global Research.

The Collaborative Partnership Research Grant program fosters international research broadly.  Applicants from all schools and disciplines are encouraged to submit funding applications for innovative and sustainable projects built around collaborative research linking researchers at UQ and Emory. The research may take place in any country or region as long as it is done collaboratively. The expectation is that these initial projects will lead to long-term collaborations, institutional and research relations, and when applicable, generate publications, exhibitions, and/or external funding. Applications that include students and/or collaborations across schools, disciplines and units are encouraged but not required. 

In 2020-21, up to two applications will be funded (each with two principal investigators: one from UQ and one from Emory).  Each application will receive up to USD$10,000 from their respective institution for a total of up to USD$20,000. These funds must be used for research (broadly defined), follow the budget guidelines and project activities must comply with the COVID-19 advice from the Australian government and UQ.
