Research development and support at RMIT Europe is focused on connecting RMIT’s research strengths and priorities with European funding and collaboration opportunities.
Our team on the ground in Barcelona, Spain, is well-connected with central research and innovation services to offer seamless support across RMIT for European research activities.
Trends, stakeholders and opportunities
We identify research trends, stakeholders and opportunities in Europe. We are building on RMIT networks and forging new ones to develop a comprehensive understanding of the research and innovation ecosystems in Europe, and match them with RMIT research strengths and researchers.
We regularly attend information sessions and engage with advisors and decision-makers for the EU Horizon 2020 (H2020) research and innovation program. This is a €70 billion five-year program that RMIT is able to partner in through our presence in Europe.
Our research team is connecting RMIT researchers with H2020’s new two-year work program priorities, which include future and emerging technologies, information and communication technologies, as well as societal challenges. Visit the H2020 website.
We support with grant applications for European funding. Once a funding opportunity is identified, we support researchers with planning and developing the application. We can also assist researchers to identify potential partners and research collaborators to build strong research relationships.
We have the local knowledge and expertise to help develop processes for research projects as well as ensure compliance with funding rules and reporting requirements. We are well-equipped to host researchers during any stage of research, from application development through to post-award, at our modern premises in the centre of Barcelona, Spain.
An example is the EU funded Marie Curie ADAPT-r grant for the Design Practice Research PhD program within RMIT's School of Architecture and Design. We manage the grant as well as host the annual Design Practice Research Symposium in Barcelona. Visit the ADAPT-r or Marie Sk?odowska-Curie actions websites.
We foster student mobility in Europe. Our focus is on growing PhD opportunities within RMIT’s network of more than 115 universities across Europe. We use our experience in the region to advise on the connection between these European partners and RMIT research priorities. Application support for PhD training schemes is also available by our team.
Our premises in Barcelona is open to RMIT researchers while they undertake fieldwork in Europe. We recently hosted Sarah Howe, a PhD student from RMIT’s School of Global, Urban and Social Studies, for six months as she conducted research into European regional policy.
