MQ Enterprise Partnership Scheme

MQ Enterprise Partnership Scheme

AimThe Macquarie University Enterprise Partnerships Scheme is intended to support the establishment and development of mutually beneficial links with private sector and government enterprises. The University and the partner organisation will contribute resources to a research project aimed at establishing a longer term relationship.
FundingUniversity staff may seek support for research projects involving private or government enterprises which are prepared to provide a cash contribution to the project which at least matches the sum requested from the University. The maximum amount that may be requested from the University is $20,000. There is no limit on a partner's cash contribution.  Grants are for one year only and must commence within three months of the date of notification of success. It is expected that they will lead to further funding from the partner organisation on further projects.
