GIH External Project Calls

Genome Innovation Hub - External Projects

The Genome Innovation Hub (GIH) is a University of Queensland initiative that aims to develop innovative approaches to advance technologies in structural and functional analysis of genomes. The GIH operates as a collaborative research centre, focussed on designing and implementing cutting-edge methodologies in the areas of health, agriculture and the environment.

GIH runs a yearly project call, where it seeks to engage in collaborative projects in partnership with research groups across UQ. Opening of project calls are announced on the GIH Website, GIH Twitter, GIH Newsletters and broadly advertised across UQ media platforms.

Successful project innovations will be made broadly available for uptake, either through UQ central research services or research groups willing to collaborate and/or train research staff in these newly developed approaches. 

About the opportunity 

Applications from UQ research groups who are interested in collaborating on projects to develop cutting-edge technology breakthroughs must be submitted through the annual GIH External Project call.  For successful applications, collaborating research groups will work closely with GIH in the design and development of projects, with both groups actively contributing to projects (including co-investment in funding and personnel expertise).

To find out more about previous recipients of GIH Collaborative Projects and their research, see our collaborative projects page here.
