Research Infrastructure Program

The Research Infrastructure Program (RIP) provides funding for research infrastructure that will support a range of research projects across the University. All eligible staff are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.

These funds may supplement funding for infrastructure from faculty/centre budgets and infrastructure developed with the help of external grant funds. This infrastructure may contribute to teaching resources, but the primary purpose of the infrastructure is to be for the achievement of research outcomes. The RIP is not designed for the funding of specialised equipment that is relevant only to a particular individual research project.
