MQ Research Infrastructure Scheme (Small)

MQ Research Infrastructure Scheme (Small)

Status Open

The purpose of the Research Infrastructure Scheme (RIS) is to develop Macquarie University’s research infrastructure in a strategic way that is aligned with the University’s Research Framework and Faculty Research Infrastructure Plans. The RIS is administered through two schemes run in parallel, the Research Infrastructure Scheme (Large), and the Research Infrastructure Scheme (Small).

While this RIS (Small) provides specific infrastructure to the research programs of individual researchers and research groups, the RIS (Large) provides more general research infrastructure support to Faculties. This page provides details, Funding Rules and the Application Form which apply to RIS (Small). For guidance on RIS (Large) please contact Thom Dixon in the Office of the DVC (Research) (


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