Collaborative Research Networks (CRN)

Funded by: Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education

The Collaborative Research Networks program is a research specific program intended to effect structural adjustment in the research and research training aspects of Australia's higher education system. It is designed to develop the research capacity of smaller less research-intensive and regional higher education institutions.

Projects

ANU is a partnering organisation on five CRN projects. The Research Services Division (RSD) supports the projects by assisting in the development and implementation of Partner Agreements, Financial Agreements and Memorandums of Understanding. The RSD provides efficient administrative support for project activities and facilitates interaction between ANU and its partner institutions/organisations.
