Injury Prevention Graduate Research Industry Partnership (IP-GRIP)

A vision for an injury-free society


Today, graduate researchers are expected to adapt to different work environments and industries, cross-discipline boundaries, and apply their research in meaningful ways. GRIPs bring together graduate researchers (PhD students) and academic leaders from various fields with external partners to explore an issue of global significance.

The innovative aspects of the IP-GRIP model include the research focus on priorities that will directly impact agency processes, policy and activities and the well-established and strong links between Monash Faculties and stakeholders. Importantly, the IP-GRIP will deliver up to 16 new innovative researchers who will deliver high quality inter-disciplinary research addressing public policy and practice challenges.
