ARC

Discovery Projects for 2012 now open - internal due date 21 February 2011

Applications are now open in RMS for Discovery Project grants to commence in 2012. The Funding Rules, Instructions to Applicants, and FAQs as well as timelines and other important information are available from the Swinburne Research Discovery Projects web page.

The Scheme aims to support excellent basic and applied research by individuals and teams, enhance the scale and focus of research in the National Research Priorities, expand Australia’s knowledge base and research capability, encourage research and research training in high-quality research environments, enhance international collaboration in research, and foster the international competitiveness of Australian research.

The research project must not overlap with research funded by a Commonwealth-funded Research Centre, nor must it contain near-term clinical medical (including dental) outcomes and must not overlap with medical and dental research funded by or to be funded by the NHMRC.

Grants may be awarded for up to three years. The minimum grant size is $30,000 per calendar year and the maximum is $500,000 per calendar year.

Applicants may apply for funds to support personnel, including PhD stipends; equipment; access to national and international research and infrastructure facilities; project maintenance; access to workshop services; travel, including International Collaboration Awards; and teaching relief.

The Scheme also allows mid-late career Chief Investigators to apply for a Discovery Outstanding Researcher Award (DORA) to fund their salary. CIs may not submit a DORA-only application. A maximum of two DORAs may be applied for per application, and a request for a DORA within a Discovery Projects Proposal and a Future Fellowships Proposal cannot be submitted for the same CI within the same calendar year.

Those applicants who are currently recipients of other ARC grants are strongly advised to refer to clause 9 of the Funding Rules, which state the number of funded projects investigators are eligible to apply for and hold.

Applicants who do not yet have RMS accounts are advised to visit the Swinburne Research RMS web page for guidance.

For all enquiries relating to RMS please contact Sally Fried, sfried@swin.edu.au/ext. 8145.

For all enquiries relating to 2012 ARC Discovery Projects applications please contact Asha Rawlings (arawlings@swin.edu.au or x8251) or Paul Forsyth (pforsyth@swin.edu.au or x8069).

2012 ARC LIEF (Linkage Infrastructure Equipment and Facilities) Scheme - internal due date 23 February 2011 website

The ARC has not yet released information on the LIEF scheme for funding to commence in 2012. However, given the Scheme's importance for establishing and accessing vital research infrastructure, the Victorian Deputy Vice Chancellors (Research) have agreed to increased involvement in the process, so that Victorian universities can be better able to make more strategic decisions regarding the applications they intend to support. 

This will mean an earlier submission timetable for formally expressing interest in the Scheme, with Expressions of Interest forms (available on our website) due with Swinburne Research by 23 Feb 2011. The completed form is to be submitted electronically in WORD format to Swinburne Research at resgrants@swin.edu.au AND a FULLY signed hard copy (must be signed by the Faculty Dean), by 23 Feb 2011 to Paul Forsyth, Swinburne Research Office, Room 60W703, internal mail No. H68

This is a hard deadline given that the Victorian DVC(R)s will meet shortly afterwards to discuss potential joint bids.

Swinburne is keen to encourage bids under the LIEF Scheme and funding will be provided from the University’s Capital Management Plan, with the level of support corresponding to the University's strategic priorities. Due to the uncertain success rates of LIEF applications, sufficient central funds cannot be guaranteed to cover all successful applications, therefore, Faculties will still need to commit and demonstrate ownership to provide at least 50% of the cash associated with their LIEF applications.

The actual calling upon of faculty funds may be less than this if sufficient funds are available from the central source, with priority accorded to bids that are led by Swinburne researchers and where the equipment or facility will be located at Swinburne University. Lower priority is accorded to those applications where Swinburne is not the Administering institution, but some equipment will still be located at Swinburne. Applications where Swinburne is not the administering institution and where little or no equipment will be located at Swinburne University will only be supported in exceptional circumstances.

ARC Progress Reports – internal due date 14 February 2011 website
Please note that the Progress Report templates are now available from Swinburne Research’s website.

Researchers whose grant was scheduled to end in 2010 or earlier but who have not fully expended their ARC funds with the intention to request a carry-forward of funds into 2011 are required to submit a Progress Report.

Researchers whose grant was scheduled to end in 2010 or earlier and have expended their ARC funds are required to submit a Final Report by June 2011 and not a Progress Report.

Linkage Projects
Please note that additional separate reports are required for APAI students.

2010 Round 2 Linkage Projects that have been underway for less than one year do not need to submit a Progress Report until January 2012.

Please direct any queries to Sally Fried (sfried@swin.edu.au or ext. 8145).

Library Research News

Spotlight on: Swinburne Research Bank

Welcome to the second Library services for researchers feature in the Research Bulletin, highlighting ways the Library can help you in your research at Swinburne.

A really useful tool we provide to all researchers is Swinburne Research Bank. It’s an online open access collection of research authored by Swinburne researchers, and it’s available free to the world to help your work reach a wider audience and maximise its potential for citation. Swinburne Research Bank is designed to create a complete picture of research published at Swinburne, so it’s a great way to find out about what’s going on in research at Swinburne. You might even spot a potential collaborator working in a similar area!

Swinburne Research Bank records are indexed by Google and Google Scholar, and harvested by the National Library’s Trove website and other indexing services. Swinburne Research Bank also contains a full text copy of all PhD and Masters by Research theses awarded at Swinburne since 2005 (although not all are made available straight away).

We’ve found that researchers find Swinburne Research Bank particularly useful as a personal information management tool—we record all your publications (journal articles, conference papers, book chapters, reports, working papers and more) so you can easily create a comprehensive list of your publications for grant proposals or your staff webpage. Wherever copyright permits (and we have agreement from you), we also store a full text copy of each publication. There is no charge for the use of any of the material we make available, ensuring your research is accessible to people around the world who may not be able to subscribe to scholarly journals.

Please contact Swinburne Research Bank staff if you would like your research included. You might also like to read more through our newsletters.

The Library is always looking for more ways to support researchers. We’d love to hear from you about what might be useful for you, and what you think about our current services and resources. You can contact Rebecca Parker at rparker@swin.edu.au, or on 9214 4806.

New Research Grant Opportunities

Advanced Manufacturing CRC (AMCRC) – Research in Renewable Energy, Electric Vehicle Componentry and Carbon Abatement Expressions of Interest website
Rapid Internal Closing Date: 9 February 2011

The Advanced Manufacturing CRC (AMCRC) is currently seeking applications on a competitive basis to co-fund high quality proposals from industries (small, medium, and large enterprises) and research providers from anywhere in Australia in three areas of sustainable manufacturing: 

1. Renewable Energy Componentry (e.g. Solar, Tidal / Marine, Wind, and ancillary technologies, such as inverters)

2. Electric Vehicle Componentry (e.g. batteries, control systems, motors)

3. Systems (or component parts of systems) for carbon abatement / emission reduction

The Advanced Manufacturing CRC (AMCRC) is funded under the Australian Government's Cooperative Research Centre Program. The principal goal of AMCRC is to create valuable intellectual property for local and global exploitation in advanced materials, devices, products, processes, and components. 

The AMCRC funding model provides financial leverage by matching industry funds (1:1) with CRC money (approximately one to five million dollars per successful project application spanning several years).  

Applications may be industry or research-provider led, but must contain one or more industry and one or more recognised research providers. Proposals involving intra-industry collaboration (e.g. a small consortium of small to medium size enterprises) and/or investigators from more than one research institution are particularly encouraged. This expression of interest is not restricted to research providers or industry participants who have existing relationships with AMCRC.  

The Centre funds research predominately carried out by recognised research providers in Australia (e.g. Universities, CSIRO, etc); industrial sponsors can be local or international. However, in the latter case, there must be demonstrated benefits to Australia.

v Travel

New Travel Grant Opportunities

The CASS Foundation – Travel Grants website
Internal Closing Date: 17 February 2011
Please note there are two rounds per year – the internal closing date for the next round is 10 August 2011.

The CASS Travel Grants enables early career researchers (ECR) to attend international conferences. The applicant is expected to be presenting new research as a platform presentation or as a poster where the applicant is first author. The grants are not available for travel to attend conferences being held in Australia.

In most cases, CASS will consider an ECR to be a researcher who is within seven or eight years of the start of their research career. This normally means that the applicant will have been awarded a PhD within the past seven or eight years. CASS at its discretion may allow some flexibility in the interpretation of this time frame where the applicant's work history or other circumstances may warrant it.

Applications from Australian citizens resident overseas at the closing date of applications are not accepted. In view of CASS’s primary objectives in making Travel Grants available, awards will not be made to support overseas field work, independent research or courses of study.

Please note an applicant will be awarded only one CASS Travel Grant in a year. That is to say that successful applicants may not apply for a grant in the following grant round.

International Balzan Prize Foundation - 2011 Balzan Prizes website
External Closing Date: 15 March 2011

The Balzan Prizes are chosen by the General Prize Committee in two general subject areas: Literature, Moral Sciences, and the Arts; and the Physical, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences and Medicine. The four Balzan Prizes, two per category, are awarded to scholars, artists, and scientists who have distinguished themselves in their fields on an international level.

The subject areas in which the awards are granted are rotated, and this special characteristic of the Balzan Prize ensures the promotion and recognition of new or emerging fields of study or research that may have been overlooked by other international awards.

In 2001, the Articles of the Balzan Foundation made a stipulation that prize winners must destine half of the prize to finance research projects that are preferably carried out by young scholars or scientists.

The General Prize Committee announced that the 2011 Balzan Prizes will be awarded in the following fields:

- Ancient History (The Graeco-Roman World)
- Enlightenment Studies 
- Theoretical Biology and Bioinformatics
- The Early Universe (From the Planck Time to the First Galaxies)

The Electrochemical Society – Electrodeposition Revision Research Award website
External Closing Date: 1 April 2011

The Electrodeposition Division establishes this award to recognise outstanding research contributions to the field of electrodeposition and to encourage the publication of high quality papers in this field in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society.

The granting of ‘The Research Award of the Electrodeposition Division’ shall be based upon some recent outstanding achievement in, or contribution to, the field of electrodeposition. The award will be given to an author or co-authors of a paper or papers, at least one of which must have appeared in the Journal or other publications of the Electrochemical Society, reporting this new achievement. As supporting evidence, the patent literature may also enter into consideration if the achievement has been made the subject of letters of patent by the author(s).

It is recommended that papers appearing in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society during the one year prior to the first of March of the award year be considered for this research award. However, since the significance of a research paper may increase in relation to later discoveries, the papers that have appeared during the period of ten years prior to the award year may also be considered.

The award will consist of an appropriately worded citation and a cheque for the amount of US$2,000.00. If the award is made jointly to two or more co-recipients, duplicate citations will be presented to each recipient. The cash award, however, will remain unchanged and will be equally divided among the award recipients.
