Applications for CIN PhD scholarships are now open.
Member universities of the Connectivity Innovation Network are each supporting two places for an initial period of 3.5 years, with potential opportunity for extension at the discretion of the relevant university and CIN.
The research priorities for this round of scholarship applications are as follows:
- Emerging terrestrial and non-terrestrial communications technologies for rural and regional areas and communities
- Disaster-resilient and sustainable energy supplies
- Novel sensors and sensor networks for environmental monitoring and prediction relating to flooding and bushfire
- Emerging technologies for data sharing and cyber security
This commitment from CIN member universities is reflective of each university’s support of research and innovation in the connectivity space. The successful applicants will have several expectations as a result of their successful funding such as the below:
- Submit regular reports to the CIN technical steering committee every six months in the form of a written progress report and a final report within 6 months of the project end date.
- Present at the annual CIN Connection Innovations Symposium to showcase their progress, findings, and achievements to the NSW connectivity community including government, industry, and universities.
- Participate in CIN-funded projects as appropriate.
