This event is open to the broader research community of the University of Melbourne, for those interested in applying for the 2016 Seed Funding round delivered by the Melbourne Networked Society Institute (MNSI).

The session will outline the Seed Funding application process and requirements. Most of the information covered in this session can also be found at the MNSI 2016 Seed Funding webpage.

The Melbourne Networked Society Institute (MNSI) is seeking applications from the University’s research community for innovative interdisciplinary research projects. The Institute supports research on the connectivity between people, places and things to solve the problems facing the networked society.

The Institute’s Seed Funding round seeks to catalyse new innovative interdisciplinary projects to further the Institute’s research agenda. The program is designed to support small-to-medium scale projects from $20,000 to $50,000 that have the issues facing the networked society at their core and show the potential for future external funding.

Seed funding provides the opportunity for the Institute to support novel, new research projects from University researchers. Projects will be well-defined and in alignment with the Institute. Project teams will be interdisciplinary and build research capacity at the University. Collaborations with external organisations is welcomed and projects will demonstrate the capacity to scale research through the attraction of external funding and partnerships.
