About the TRUSTED AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS DEFENCE CRC
The Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence CRC (TAS DCRC) has been established to research, develop and deliver world-leading trusted autonomous Defence technology; build new and innovative IP through focused research and technology programs, while assisting Australian industry in developing new, improved and competitive autonomous technologies; evaluate the utility of autonomous systems to Defence through capability demonstrations; transform the capacity and ability of Defence to acquire, deploy and sustain leading-edge autonomous and robotic technologies; and improve the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of Australian industry.
TAS DCRC achieves this by fostering collaboration between Defence, industry and research organisations. TAS DCRC is headquartered in Queensland as part of the Queensland State Government’s desire to foster innovation and create growth and opportunities across the State. TAS DCRC is working on a range of initiatives to support the State Government’s ambitious objectives.
The Advance Queensland Trusted Autonomous Systems DCRC Fellowship
The Advance Queensland Trusted Autonomous Systems DCRC (AQ TAS DCRC) Fellowship program is an opportunity developed by TAS DCRC in partnership with the Queensland State Government. The program provides individuals employed by a Queensland based publicly funded research organisation and their partners access to matched funds of up to $300,000 to support a 3-year research fellow in key focus areas important to future development and exploitation of autonomy.
This joint initiative will build Queensland’s reputation and capacity to conduct innovative research and development, deliver new products and services for Queenslanders, establish new industries that will provide jobs for the future, attract and keep talented researchers in Queensland, and develop sovereign capability for the Defence industry.
The Fellowship program supports researchers undertaking original work that will have a positive impact on Queensland. The following AQ TAS DCRC Fellowship grants are available:
- early-career fellowships – $180,000 over three years (excluding GST)
- mid-career fellowships – $300,000 over three years (excluding GST)
The program is managed by TAS DCRC and Fellowship funding is paid to the applicant organisation (the Fellow’s employer).
Relationship to Advance Queensland Fellowships
This program is inspired by the current Advance Queensland Fellowship program but operates independently. In the AQ TAS DCRC Fellowship, TAS DCRC is the funding body. Applications are submitted directly to TAS DCRC, not through the Advance Queensland application process.
The AQ TAS DCRC Fellowships are supported by funding from the Queensland Government
