Supporting more women into STEM careers: Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) National Research Internships Program (NRIP)


The Australian Government is providing $28.2 million over four years (from 2016-17 to 2019-20) to the National Research Internships Program (NRIP), expanding the existing Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) PhD internships program to a nationally-scaled program. The National Research Internships Program will:

  • support 1400 new industry-based internships for PhD researchers, with a focus on supporting more women in science, technology, engineering, or mathematical (STEM) disciplines
  • provide PhD students with the opportunity to work with an industry partner on a research project and apply their knowledge in the workforce
  • encourage greater collaboration between industry and universities

Australia-India Skills Mission


The 2017 Australia-India Skills Mission, Skilling a Global Economy will bring together representatives from business, industry and government. The aim of the visit is to strengthen collaboration between Australia and India, fostering new ways of working together to address skills and workforce challenges.

National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS)


Australian Government National Innovation and Science Agenda

Through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), the Government works with the research sector to drive research excellence and its application by:

  • collaboratively identifying priorities for research infrastructure investment over the coming decade
  • catalysing research infrastructure projects, collaboratively implemented by the sector, that improve research projects by expertly addressing the scope of researcher needs
  • simultaneously addressing related end-user needs, including industry, Government and other end users.

NCRIS supports approximately 40,000 users each year.
