Are you passionate about finding solutions to global challenges such as food security, water security, global migration, an ageing population, the decline in biodiversity, sustainable development or decarbonising our energy systems and economies?

Do your research ideas cut across disciplinary and thematic boundaries, and demand new ways of thinking?

Do you have a clear ‘line of sight’ to state, national or international policy-making and end-users in government, industry and civil society that you hope to inform with your research? Would you like to work with colleagues from across UQ and beyond on projects designed to have an impact and influence?

If so, the Global Change Institute’s new Flagship Project scheme, valued at up to $120,000 over two years, could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for!
