The Research Infrastructure Scheme: Supporting Collaborative Research


Similar to the previous Major Research Equipment and Infrastructure Initiative, the Research Infrastructure Scheme funds equipment and other infrastructure, including research support staff. The scheme is designed to provide UNSW with a world-class research environment to attract and retain a critical mass of research excellence. Whether it is in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, or in Medical research, Science, Engineering and Technology, our investment in research infrastructure and equipment is a strategic investment to enable our researchers to work at the cutting edge of local, national and international research. To achieve this goal, the scheme aims to not only enable acquisition of high-end infrastructure, but to maximise accessibility of infrastructure by also funding support staff who will facilitate access and training.

UNSW Scientia Fellowship program


The Scientia Fellowship program is one of the cornerstones of UNSW’s 2025 Strategy. Its aim is to attract and retain the best and brightest people, with outstanding research track records. A primary goal of the program is to enhance UNSW research performance by attracting and retaining exceptional researchers at the highest level relative to career stage.
