Ms Lorena (Lori) Sciusco is a Reimagine Fellow, and her project is developing toolkits for CECS academics.
The toolkit will help CECS academics apply for grants and secure industry collaboration to further their research development. To be developed over four stages and ready for implementation by Semester 1, 2021, it will also be made available to HDR students who are interested in collaborative projects with public and private partners.
The toolkit will benefit academics and the College more broadly by contributing to better developed proposals and funding applications that meet basic due diligence considerations.
It will help the College engage effectively with both public and private sectors and will save time and resources by improving the decision-making process prior to investing both in applications that do not meet the values of the University or the College.
