For emerging academics, taking part in an international conference can have a profound impact on their teaching and research. Conferences are a chance to share research, to learn about the latest developments in an area of work, and to build valuable professional networks. Researchers return to their universities better informed and better connected, and with new knowledge that can be shared and multiplied among colleagues and students.
The ACU’s Early Career Conference Grants help to ensure that more emerging researchers – and the universities that employ them – can benefit from these valuable opportunities. Open to academic staff at ACU member universities, the grants are aimed specifically at researchers early in their careers who have not yet had the opportunity to travel beyond their region.
Applications are currently closed and will re-open in January 2020.
