The UNSW Research Infrastructure Scheme

The Research Infrastructure Scheme provides UNSW researchers with funding for equipment and other infrastructure in order to create a world-class research environment. 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 maximize accessibility of infrastructure by also funding support staff who will facilitate access and training.
