Research Strategy and Partnerships Office

The Research Strategy and Partnerships Office (RSPO) team works very closely with Faculties, research teams and researchers to identify opportunities and support the development of collaborations, partnerships and proposals for research funding from all domestic and international sources. This includes working with UNSW researchers at all stages of their careers on:

  • competitive research grants
  • research centres
  • contract and commissioned research/tenders
  • prestigious awards and fellowships 

The RSPO also works extensively with external industry, government and other funding organisations to initiate and strengthen strategic research partnerships.

The team works in close consultation with UNSW Innovations, the Grants Management Office and other relevant parts of the Research Division and broader University to support UNSW researchers and strengthen the University’s research performance and profile in line with the objectives of the new strategic plan.
