2023 Seed Funding announced

| 14 Dec 2022

We are pleased to announce opportunities to apply for Seed Funding from the Institute: one entirely funded by us, and two grants jointly funded with Institute partners.

UNSW Allens Hub for Technology, Law & Innovation
We have collaborated with the Allens Hub to provide Seed Funding to two projects as part of their 2023 round:

  • Access to Justice (A2J) and Technology, led by Associate Professor Daniel Ghezelbash and Matthew Keeley, which will map and perform an accessibility audit on existing A2J and technology initiatives in Australia
  • Right to Repair, led by Professor Matthew Kearnes, which will use a co-designed approach to research the repairability of medical devices and assistive technologies.

Australian Human Rights Institute
We have partnered with the Australian Human Rights Institute (AHRI) to offer a joint Seed Funding program to support multidisciplinary disability-related projects in human rights. 

The Disability Human Rights Research Grant will provide Seed Funding for disability-related projects that strengthen human rights research at UNSW and that have the potential to contribute to a better quality of life for people with disability. The purpose of the Seed Funding is to establish or advance inclusive and interdisciplinary research between UNSW academic researchers, people with disability, government, industry, and community.

Applications will open on Wednesday 1 March 2023 and close Tuesday 4 April 2023. Applicants must be an Associate of either or both Institutes. More information can be found here

UNSW Disability Innovation Institute Seed Funding
The Institute will also be offering up to $25,000 in Seed Funding for an interdisciplinary, disability inclusive research project at UNSW. Applicants must be Associates of the Institute and can apply for Associateship at the same time as Seed Funding.

Applications are now open and close Friday 17 February 2023 at 5pm.
