Linkage Projects

Australian Research Council Linkage Projects for funding applied for in 2018 (LP18): La Trobe University Development Support Guidelines

About Linkage Projects

Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Projects are designed to support the development of research alliances between universities and other organisations. With a success rate higher than other ARC administered research funding schemes, Linkage Projects offer an excellent opportunity to begin building an ARC funding profile.

Each Linkage Project must include one Partner Organisation. A Partner Organisation is an Australian or overseas organisation, that provides cash and in-kind contributions to a Linkage Project. Partner Organisations cannot be an Australian university or an entity either controlled by or more than 50% owned by an Australian university.

Funding requests of the ARC must be matched dollar for dollar with a contribution from the Partner Organisation(s). 25% of the matching contribution must be cash, except when all Partner Organisations contributing to the Project are exempt from a cash contribution. Please contact the Grants Team (x 1134) should you require more information about Partner Organisations and contribution requirements.
