Graduate Research Industry Partnerships

PhD collaboration with impact.

About

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.
