Funding opportunities and grants provided by CBA
These small grants (up to $15K) aim to 'ignite' novel collaborative research across ANU, CSIRO and UC.
An Ignition Grant provides an opportunity to test the feasibility of new and innovative ideas, techniques, tools, etc. with new collaborators. We are looking for creative, original project ideas that will genuinely benefit from seed funding.
Successful applicants will be expected to share their results in a seminar organised by CBA staff.

Policy and/or management outcomes via knowledge transfer amongst biodiversity scientists and policy makers and/or managers.
Previously funded Synthesis Groups
The CBA can help facilitate ANU and UC students spending time in CSIRO labs, providing valuable exposure to CSIRO scientists and research. Co-supervised honours projects also afford an excellent opportunity to develop collaborative linkages between CSIRO staff and university researchers.
The CBA may provide up to $10,000 for operational expenses and stipends for a honours student enrolled at ANU or University of Canberra with a CSIRO co-supervisor.
We want to hear from you!
The CBA welcomes input from our Early Career Researchers (Postdocs and PhD students) regarding the types of training activities they need to address their specific research requirements and interests.
A major objective of CBA is to enhance collaboration and training opportunities via external visitors who will present a workshop and/or seminar to the CBA community during their visit to Canberra.
