The Henry Halloran Research Trust (HHRT) supports cross-disciplinary research that informs urban and regional policy, planning, and the built environment. We aim to advance scholarly contributions to these fields by leveraging the diverse disciplinary strengths across the University of Sydney’s many academic units and collaborators, while also promoting wider engagement across policy makers, practitioners, and the wider community.
The Research Seminar and Publication Scheme offers funding for academics from various disciplines to host a workshop or seminar program on a theme relevant and aligned with the research interests of the Trust. This year the Trust is particularly interested in proposals which address these research interests with reference to the themes of themes of climate change, Indigenous land, or socially just cities and regions.
Closing date: 4 September
The seminar should focus around a set of papers intended for publication as a special issue for a peer reviewed journal or as an edited book.
Proposals led by a University of Sydney academic/s with a clear publication strategy for a collection of research papers or chapters addressing the research themes of the Henry Halloran Research Trust are eligible for funding. However, seminar participants are not be limited to the University of Sydney and should include other Australian and potentially international researchers. Academics may also have funding from other sources for their work.
Proposals for funding should address:
Funding of up to $30,000 is available to cover modest travel and accommodation expenses, as well as catering for a 2 day workshop. This funding may also be allocated to support editing / publication expenses, provided that these are properly justified. Journal / book publishing fees will not be funded.
Closing date for applications: 4 September 2023
