Event attendance and corporate sponsorship funding

ACIAR provides support to qualified individuals wishing to participate in a conference, seminar, workshop or field visit that aligns with the agricultural research for development (R4D) priorities of our partner countries. ACIAR also provides support to organisations seeking corporate sponsorship for similar events.
The aim of ACIAR events funding is to develop the skills and capacity needed to advance agricultural R4D, with a focus on people and organisations with experience in ACIAR-supported projects. Individual applicants and organisations seeking event funding must be able to demonstrate involvement in agricultural R4D and engagement in research and/or development activities within an ACIAR partner country.

ACIAR places a high priority on the dissemination and communication of knowledge gained from the experience offered by conference sponsorship. Applicant need to describe how participation in the event will provide opportunities to promote ACIAR’s work and demonstrate how they will share knowledge gained with colleagues in their partner country. Funding is allocated on a competitive basis against specified criteria, and anyone considering applying (as an individual or an organisation) should contact an ACIAR Research Program Manager (RPM) relevant the theme of the event to discuss their proposed bid before submitting a formal application.

ACIAR invites and assesses applications twice a year.
Applications close 14 April 2017.

Application must be for an event occurring sufficiently far ahead of the closing date to allow for assessment, approval and contracting.

Please read criteria and guiding principles before applying for funding support.
