The background

In November 2010 the DEHub Executive Committee approved five Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for major research projects across the 5 partner universities. Each submissions was evaluated by the DEHub Executive Committee accepted and the committee made a request to applicant to provide a full proposal for each project. In early 2011 the full proposals were eventuated by the DEHub Executive Committee and approved for implementation. Each research project will receive $100,000 over 16 months to undertake their respective research and an additional administration support amount of approximately $13,000. Each research project has been assessed against a competitive set of criteria including justification against the DEHub research themes. EOI’s were assessed within institutions through institutionally approved processes, each subtly different. Support has been provided by the DEHub and Director to develop the proposals.
