Strategic Projects & Partnerships

What we do

Recommend and initiate large scale opportunities by connecting and supporting disparate campus activities with end-users and funders. Opportunities will have the potential to create nuclei of ANU capability relevant to emerging or existing industry or societal needs for which industry or public relationships can be leveraged to access significant funding.

Our key activities

  • Lead the identification and prioritisation of significant projects and initiatives with ANU Executive and Academic leaders
  • Lead the development of strategic projects and initiatives with ANU stakeholders focused on external funding sources and partners
  • Lead the execution of projects and initiatives up to project initiation and handover to ANU stakeholders/external partners

Strategic Partnerships:

  • Cultivation of key partners for the express purpose of developing and delivering Strategic Projects with ANU stakeholders
  • Lead the management of strategic partners involved with key initiatives as nominated by the ANU Executive
