In 2020, we launched the FRG Micro Grant scheme. This funding scheme is open to researchers in New Zealand and Australia for research in the area of fire engineering. The grant is 2500 NZD, and can be used to support the purchase of equipment, fund small pieces of research, co-fund larger research projects, etc.
The application process is easy. You will need to submit a short abstract (approx. 300-500 words) and budget to [email protected] by 1 Sept 2022. If you get the funding, you will be asked to prepare a short video for our YouTube channel. In the video, you will explain the research in 5-10 min.
As mentioned, you can apply for up to 2500 NZD. We are planning to fund up to 4 proposals this year. The decision of who gets the funding will be made at our September board meeting (16 September 2022), and you will be informed about the outcome shortly after we have made a decision.
