ARC Industry Fellowships (IFP) 2024

Building research capability and industry collaborations to commercialise the next generation of Australian products and companies.

About the schemes

The Australian Research Council (ARC) is set to give researchers an industry-based boost. Their new Industry Fellowships scheme will support academic research to establish careers in industry, and industry researchers to work more closely with university settings. Ultimately, this will support researchers to make great discoveries in collaboration, translation and commercialisation.

This is an exciting opportunity to secure funding to boost your industry networks and translate your research into impactful changes. Deakin is committed to the translation and commercialisation of our ideas to create positive impact for our industry partners and wider society.
