Quick response funding

Funding is now available for quick response research, providing support to researchers travelling to areas recently affected by natural hazards to ensure that the impacts are measured in a timely manner. These funds builds on the important quick response research from the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC, which supported post-disaster research impacts, recovery, data collection and rehabilitation, planning and community response for natural hazards between 2016 and 2021.

Funding support is limited to $3,000 (excluding GST) per team for any individual natural hazard. Any researcher or PhD student working in natural hazards research is eligible to apply, with PhD applications requiring the endorsement of the primary supervisor.

Funding is principally designed to reimburse travel-related expenses such as airfares, car rental, accommodation and food. Minor data collection expenditure may be considered. Upon completion, a report detailing the activities undertaken must be provided to the Centre.
