Call for applications for US-Indonesia Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium 2016

The Academy invites applications from Australian early- and mid-career researchers to attend the US-Indonesia Frontiers of Science Symposium 2016. Deadline for applications is 9am (AEST) Monday 16 May 2016.

The annual Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium brings together some of the best young scientists to explore exciting advances and opportunities in their fields. This highly interdisciplinary symposium emphasises communication of a wide range of contemporary science topics across the traditional disciplines.

The topics to be discussed this year include: big data and marine conservation; green chemistry; mass extinction and citizen science; non-communicable disease and ageing; robotics and information systems/innovation; and social decision making/behavioural economics.

Candidates should be research active in any of the six topics listed above but have a general interest across all six topics, be 45 years or younger at the time of the meeting and hold a PhD degree or equivalent.

See the website for the application form and further details<https://www.science.org.au/opportunities/travel/grants-and-exchange/us%E2%80%93indonesia-kavli-frontier-science-symposium>.

Call for applications for FASIC Fellowships 2016

The Academy invites applications from Australian early- to mid-career researchers for the France-Australia Science Innovation Collaboration (FASIC) Fellowships 2016. Deadline for applications is 5pm (AEST) Saturday 30 April 2016.

The Fellowships are a component of the FASIC Program, a platform for bilateral collaboration in science jointly managed and funded by the governments of Australia and France. The FASIC Program is a joint fund to support high calibre Australian and French early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) nominated by their institutions, to expand research and innovation activities and to initiate sustainable research networks and linkages to support both countries’ research and innovation priorities.

Candidates should hold a PhD degree or equivalent research doctorate which must have been conferred within 15 years at time of application and be research active in any field of the natural sciences, including technology, engineering and medicine. Candidates engaged in multidisciplinary research are invited to apply.

See the website for the application form and further details<https://www.science.org.au/opportunities/travel/grants-and-exchange/france-australia-fellowships-fasic-program>.

[Invitation to the Official Launch of the Australian IP Toolkit for Collaboration and the National Innovation Map]


Deadline for applications extended until
9am (AEST) Monday 11 April 2016







Do you have entrepreneurial talent?

Are you research active in a field of the natural sciences, including earth, chemical or biological sciences; technology; engineering; or medicine, or in the humanities or social sciences? If so, you have the opportunity to be part of an Australian first and participate in an innovative entrepreneurial event at the Australian National University in Canberra. Plus you could win a trip to France!

What is the Challenge?

The Australian-French Entrepreneurship Challenge is a unique national competition for participants to design an innovative start-up business venture.

Participants will receive entrepreneurial training from business experts, exposing them to a whole new career path. They will then work, over a continuous 24 hour period, in cross-disciplinary teams to develop a novel business venture from their scientific expertise.

Each team will pitch their innovative start‑up concept to a jury of expert French and Australian businesses, competing for the opportunity to travel to France for a prestigious, first-hand experience of the country’s innovation system.

How does the Challenge work?

Teams of up to six people will be challenged to design a new, innovative and profitable start-up venture in their respective field. The selection panel will allocate successful applicants to teams based on their field of research. Each team will include at least one student of the humanities or social sciences. All team members must be individually registered.

When is the Challenge?

The event will be held at ANU in Canberra from 8.00am Thursday 2nd to 8.00pm Friday 3rd June 2016, with a short training session preceding the continuous 24 hour challenge period, followed by an award ceremony.

Enter the Challenge
