Objectives of the fund

The Roger Landbeck Professional Development Fund (RLPDF) aims at supporting early career researchers from the Oceania region in their development as researchers and in connecting with their home communities. The fund aims at supporting the creation of hubs of sharing or communities of practice among early career researchers. It recognizes the importance of two-directional knowledge flows between researchers and communities and honours the knowledge of those communities.

In the 2023 round one grant of up to AUD 5,000 (plus GST for expenses accruing in Australia) is available. The call for 2023 applications opens in April and closes on 31 July 2023. For detailed information see the guidelines document.
