About the Study Melbourne Research Partnerships Program

In partnership with Study Melbourne, veski has successfully delivered the Study Melbourne Research Partnerships program, awarding $2.8m in major research projects between Victorian public institutions and international industry or institutional partners.

This scheme is providing Victorian Education Providers with vital support for international research partnerships and projects – building strategic international relationships in future growth regions.

The successful recipients are driving international research collaboration, establishing and deepening strategic offshore partnerships for Victorian educational institutions, and strengthening the prestigious global rankings and reputation of Victoria’s public universities and TAFEs.

Successful recipients demonstrated that their project is consistent with the overall program guidelines, aligned to their institution’s international engagement strategy and involves collaboration with at least one international organisation, to be delivered over 12 months.

Each research project includes a financial or in-kind contribution from the Victorian Education Provider and/or International Project Partner.

Study Melbourne Research Partnerships Showcase

The Study Melbourne Research Partnerships Showcase to honour the program was held on 1 February 2023, celebrating the culmination of this 12-month program and was formally opened by Ms Danni Jarret, CEO, Invest Victoria & Global Victoria, and included a special address by Dr Amanda Caples, Victorian Lead Scientist.

The Showcase provided a special opportunity to highlight the success of the 15 Research Projects and to hear directly from the Victorian Research Leads about how they built and maintained their international collaborations – through the most challenging period of border closures – highlighting the calibre of our academics and research infrastructure to attract international students and grow Victoria’s global reputation for quality education and research.

International education is a critical services export for Victoria, and through the work of the Study Melbourne Research Partnerships Project Governance Group in their competitive selection and ongoing oversight, this program is supporting ground-breaking research and enhancing Victoria’s connections with leading international institutions.
