The Incubator Initiative supports early career researchers working with regional grape and wine associations and groups on regionally specific research.
Applications close on 3 May 2019 for the current intake.
Projects will be developed to answer a specific regional need, and researchers will work with our Regional Program partners and deliver the findings to grapegrowers and winemakers in the region.
Up to $20,000 is available for successful applicants to undertake the projects, with this funding matched by a co-contribution – cash or in-kind – from the organisation where the researcher is employed.
Who can apply?
The Incubator Initiative is open to early career researchers working for an Australian-based research organisation. Early career is defined as having five years or fewer of research experience since completing a PhD or Master’s degree. Applications will also be accepted from researchers who have submitted a PhD or Master’s thesis and are awaiting the outcome.
