Expressions of interest (EOI) are invited from Australian universities and research institutes to participate in the 2017 Australia-Vietnam Researcher Exchange Program.
This is an initiative of the Australian Government to strengthen the science and innovation partnership between Australia and Vietnam at the researcher - and institutional level.
Approximately 14 Australian and Vietnamese* researchers will receive a grant of up to $5,000 AUD each to support exchanges of 2 to 4 weeks in length. Participating Australian institutions will manage the exchange with a Vietnamese partner organisation.
Priority research areas - Agriculture, Health, Marine Science, Environmental Science
Time - Exchanges to take place between May and December 2017
Length of exchange - 2-4 weeks
Guidelines for Expressions of Interest

- proposed Vietnamese partner organisation, participating Australian researcher (and Vietnamese researcher if known);
- how the exchange will contribute to the development of a new or existing research partnership between the two institutions;
