ARC Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) grant scheme

Australian Research Council’s (ARC) Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) scheme provides funding of between $150,000 per year and up to 75 per cent of the total direct cost of the eligible budget items, for large-scale infrastructure, equipment and facilities which can be shared between higher education organisations and also with industry.

LIEF grant applications are typically submitted to the ARC around April, however, preparations for an application should commence at least a year prior to their submission. Researchers should first discuss their needs with the Manager, Research Infrastructure.

Draft applications for the next round of funding are due at the Research Office by the 1st December 2016.

Researchers are encouraged to check the LIEF Register that summarises the existing infrastructure, equipment and facilities which have been funded under the LIEF scheme.
