MQ Research Infrastructure Block Grants

MQ Research Infrastructure Block Grants

Status Closed

The Research Infrastructure Block Grants (RIBG) scheme is funded from an institutional block grant provided by the Commonwealth Government  . The purpose of the RIBG Scheme is to enhance the development and maintenance of research infrastructure in higher education institutions for the support of high-quality research in all disciplines.

The main objectives for the Scheme as set by the government are to:

  • Remedy deficiencies in current research infrastructure;
  • Enhance support for areas of research strength; and
  • Ensure that areas of recognised research potential, in which institutions have taken steps to initiate high quality research activity, have access to the support necessary for development.

Between $20,000 and $100,000 over the course of one year.
