UQIDAR is a flagship research partnership with an initial focus on a new joint PhD program. The Academy matriculated its first intake of PhD Scholars in January 2019.
UQIDAR aims to attract the best global talent, including elite students, academics, researchers and scientists to work on goal-directed, cross-disciplinary grand challenges that are of interest to Australia, India and the global community and that also align with UQ and IITD research strengths.
The Academy will yield significant benefits to both UQ and IITD including:
Please visit the IITD website and UQ Researchers to identify potential collaborators that would be best suited for the proposed project. We encourage that you touch base with any potential collaborators as faculty members at both UQ and IITD have been made aware of the joint-PhD program.
If you are unable to find a suitable collaborator, contact us for assistance connecting with your potential match either UQ or IITD and we would be happy to facilitate initial discussions with potential collaborators.
The UQIDAR Academy Management Committee (AMC) reviews projects and accepts them on the basis of the supervisory team, capacity to supervise, the likely impact of the project, funding arrangements of projects and how well the project has been articulated. We encourage project submissions from all disciplines.
Please submit collaboration project proposals using the UQIDAR project proposal template. This proposal will flag interest for participation in the joint-PhD program and will also be used to attract students.
