International Research Grants​

Up to $100,000 is available to support South Australian scientific and technological research.



The International Research Grants program acknowledges that international collaboration builds capacity, facilitates access to new knowledge and expertise, attracts foreign capital, and grows South Australia’s research reputation globally.

The intent of the International Research Grants is twofold: to support and facilitate South Australian scientific and technological research being conducted with an international partner and; second, to target research activities with outputs that directly relate to the State’s seven priority areas and are of strategic benefit to South Australia.



The objectives of the International Research Grants are to:

  • Seek solutions for complex and significant problems of direct relevance to South Australia,
  • Support existing or facilitate new collaborative, leading-edge research activities between South Australian and international research organisations in areas of strategic importance to the State,
  • Facilitate access for local researchers to the global research and development system, including providing opportunities for the next generation of researchers,
  • Develop new and increase existing research capabilities and capacity within South Australia, and
  • Improve South Australia’s research performance as evidenced by successful leveraging of Commonwealth, industry or other competitive research funding.



Funding, to a maximum of $100,000 per year, will be available to facilitate and support the research work of the collaboration.
