CIFR Expression of Interest template 

CIFR Full Proposal template 

 

CIFR will evaluate each Expression of Interest and Full Proposal based on the selection criteria set out below.  Projects will be ranked on the basis of the extent to which the relevant proposal meets the criteria.  Projects will not progress if they do not meet all the mandatory criteria.

 

CIFR has a strong interest in funding both short-term projects and longer term projects.   

  • Short-term projects would typically be delivered within 12 months and funding requirements would typically be up to $100,000. It is envisaged that CIFR might spend approximately 30% of its total funding on short-term projects.

  • Long term projects would typically take up to 3 years to complete and funding would be approximately $100,000 - $300,000 p.a. It is expected that a more rigorous assessment process would be applied to projects requesting significant amounts of funding.

Continued funding is contingent on project outputs being delivered and project milestones being met.

 

MANDATORY

  • Project is within CIFR’s research themes.

  • Project plan clearly demonstrates how it will significantly advance knowledge and relevant policy and regulatory responses in relation to Australian financial markets or in relation to international issues that have implications for Australian financial markets.

  • There is support from relevant regulators, policy makers and/or industry. CIFR will be flexible as to how support can be secured and demonstrated and will liaise directly with relevant stakeholders as needed.

  • Project plan demonstrates value for money.

  • The project is not otherwise funded e.g. from the ARC.

  • Output includes specified project milestones and deliverables and makes provision for at least annual review of progress.

  • All principal researchers are recognised experts in their field.

HIGHLY DESIRABLE

  • Project is consistent with CIFR key areas of interest.

  • The project involves collaboration across universities and – even better – international collaborators.

  • The project is multidisciplinary except where that is clearly not appropriate.

DESIRABLE

  • There is potential for the project to drive innovation in market developments.
