The DVC-R has launched a strategy to bolster and diversify the University’s international competitive grant income.  A component of this strategic initiative is the engagement of a US consultancy group, McAllister & Quinn (M&Q), who provide targeted guidance and grant writing/proposal development support to engage US Federal Government competitive research funding. To facilitate this initial stage of engagement with M&Q, the DVC-R has opened a call for internal Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from UQ teams with research programs positioning for US Federal competitive funding.
