Graduate Research Industry Partnerships (GRIP)
Today, graduate researchers are expected to adapt to different work environments and industries, cross-discipline boundaries, and apply their research in meaningful ways.
Graduate Research Industry Partnerships (GRIPs) are our response to the rising demand for researchers with interdisciplinary capabilities and the readiness to apply their expertise to solving real-world problems in industry.
Graduate research students in a GRIP are honed to become thought leaders for industry through a unique industry-driven interdisciplinary training program, internship opportunities, mentoring and scholarships.
GRIPs bring together graduate researchers (PhD students) and academic leaders from various fields with external partners to explore an issue of global significance.
Outstanding graduate research students from multiple disciplines work with established Monash academics to find innovative, interdisciplinary approaches and solutions that are relevant to industry.
The Digital and Data-Driven Innovation in Healthcare GRIP, a partnership between Monash University and Monash Partners Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre, will support up to 15 PhD students who will be addressing healthcare problems through digital and data-driven innovations and building their skills as the next generation workforce in this field.
In 2017, Monash University announced that 18 new behaviour change PhD scholarships would be offered for the first time through the Graduate Research Industry Partnership (GRIP) program. The GRIP, which is being run in partnership with some of Australia’s leading government agencies, will create a new cohort of behavioural experts with sophisticated and adaptive research skills.
The next wave of Artificial Intelligence research is no longer just a technical challenge. It incorporates social, political, economic and legal dimensions to explore how humans work and live in an artificially intelligent and data driven world.
Our academics and industry partners are passionate about creating organisations and communities where cultural diversity can flourish. In a time of unprecedented globalisation, this Graduate Research Industry Partnership (GRIP) brings together considerable research talent in demographic change and inclusion, resettlement, inclusive education, inclusive workforces and delivering programs to super-diverse communities.
