Linkage Projects is a grant program run by the ARC. It aims to create long-term research alliances between researchers in academia and industry to solve scientific and technological problems for the economic, social and/or cultural benefit of Australia. The ARC accepts Linkage Projectsprogram applications from eligible higher education institutions, and then allocates funding on a competitive basis; funding levels range from AUD$50,000 up to AUD$300,000 per annum (p.a.) for up to 5 years. Where an extremely high level of commitment is made by the industry partner, the ARC may consider funding levels of up to AUD$2,000,000 p.a.
