Conference Sponsorship Program
The NSW Department of Industry, through the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer, is again offering grants to support research conferences to be held in New South Wales.
This round of the Conference Sponsorship Program is open to individuals or organisations hosting conferences during 2017.
Successful applicants will be awarded funding of up to $10,000 each, depending on the overall quantity and quality of grant applications received in this round. The total funding pool in this round is $150,000.
The Conference Sponsorship Program will be open to conferences in the following categories:
The Conference Sponsorship Program is highly competitive and, as such, applications will be judged not solely on their own merit, but in relation to other applicants. The judging panel comprises NSW Office of Science & Research staff, as well as other independent panellist/s.
Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis and are the primary mechanism by which the NSW Government provides financial support for research conferences.
OCSE does, however, reserve the right to provide RAAP support outside of a competitive grants round to research conferences/workshops that would deliver economic, environmental, social and/or technological benefits to New South Wales, and that align with the NSW Premier’s Priorities
