2017 UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND DEVELOPMENT FELLOWSHIPS

C1 - RESEARCH-INDUSTRY CAPACITY AREA PLAN




RESEARCH-INDUSTRY CAPACITY AREA

OVERVIEW

The Research-Industry Capacity Area builds and enhances the candidate’s capabilities in industry engagement, to ensure they can work effectively at the research-industry interface or in industry-based positions.

The University recognises two broad areas of industry engagement:


  1. Research partnerships.

  2. Research commercialisation.

In designing a Research-Industry Capacity Area Plan, it is important to consider:

  • how the candidate’s research area can lead to impact and build on the University’s reputation as a research leader in solving real-world problems and ultimately attract increased industry funding. The formation of new research partnerships and strengthening of existing partnerships are key areas of focus in this Capacity Area, as are initiatives to build depth and breadth in translational/commercialisation skills.

  • how the awarding of a UQ Development Fellowship will tangibly enhance the candidate’s capability in the Capacity Area, over and above their current level of achievement and activity. That is, the value add/step-change enabled by the Fellowship needs to be clearly articulated.

Industry funding includes, without limitation, ARC Linkage and Industrial Transformations, Industry Growth Centres, NHMRC Development Grants and Partnership Projects, CRC-P, Advance Queensland, research partnerships, pre-license commercial research contracts and venture capital. Industry funding may also include direct funding from industry not tied to any Government funding or grant schemes. The meaning of impact is interpreted from question 4.3 Impact Measures from Form A - Academic Portfolio of Achievement of The University’s Academic Promotion process Achievement.

Impact refers to the uptake of your research beyond the academic discipline, and the broader social, economic, environmental, technological, legal and/or cultural benefits resulting from your research.

The Capacity Area plan must have a bias to teamwork and hands-on activity in an industry context. It is also expected to bolster UQ’s funding from industry.

Applicants are expected to actively engage with their Capacity Area Mentor in drafting their Capacity Area Plan. It is important that the activities described here are appropriate to the academic level of the Fellow and the expectations of the School/Centre/Faculty/Institute.

INSTRUCTIONS TO APPLICANTS:
