The University of Sydney International Research Collaboration Awards are offered to researchers of high standing at any stage of their career to share and disseminate new and original ideas and/or techniques, initiate and undertake collaborative research and facilitate interaction and training of University staff and students.

Awardees are expected to make a substantial contribution to the academic life of the University and proposals that have a particular benefit for early career researchers will be especially favoured.

Applicants and their University of Sydney host researcher must have an outstanding track record relative to opportunity. Successful applicants are expected to be based full-time at the University for the duration of the Award. Applications from returning expatriate Australians are especially encouraged.
