• This funding can be used to plan and develop research teams and projects leading to longer and sustainable collaborations. They should build towards a nominated research output (co-authored journal article, edited collection, or other publication) and/or establish a track-record of collaboration for external grant capture.
• Research activities including visits, workshops and seminars can take place at King’s or in Australia. Fieldwork, lab or archival research for a collaborative project can be conducted in the UK, Australia or elsewhere (with justification).
Activities that can be supported could include:
• Research Workshops involving both senior and early career researchers at King’s and the Australian partner organisation(s). Information about any additional support (co-funding/match funding, if available) should be provided.
• Individual Research Visit to develop concrete joint research outputs/proposals with named Australian researchers. Visits should involve Australian academics coming to King’s, or King’s staff visiting an Australian university. Applicants should provide a confirmation letter from the host/guest Australian organisation.
• Fieldwork/archival/lab research to directly contribute towards a co-written research output or as pilot for collaborative external grant application. (If King’s PhD students are involved in the project team, the application will require evidence of supervisor’s support).
