Fulbright Program. The Fulbright Program is one of the most prestigious awards programs worldwide, operating in over 155 countries.[1] Fifty-three Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes;[2] seventy-eight have won Pulitzer Prizes.[2] The program was established to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills.

Fulbright Program

The Fulbright Program provides 8,000 grants annually to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university lecturing, and classroom teaching. As of 2013, more than 325,400 persons—122,800 from the United States and 202,600 from other countries—have participated in the program since it began. International Agency for Research on Cancer.

National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP) - Australian Research Council (ARC) The ARC funds research and researchers under the National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP).

National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP) - Australian Research Council (ARC)

As part of its commitment to nurturing the creative abilities and skills of Australia's most promising researchers, the NCGP provides: support for the highest-quality research leading to the discovery of new ideas and the advancement of knowledge financial assistance towards facilities and equipment that researchers need to be internationally competitive support for the training and skills development of the next generation of researchers incentives for Australia’s most talented researchers to work in partnership with leading researchers throughout the national innovation system and internationally, and to form alliances with Australian industry.

A major component of Linkage is the ARC Centres scheme, which brings together leading researchers from around the world to work collaboratively on specific research problems. Discovery Program Linkage Program Previous Schemes. Australian Research Council. The Australian Research Council (ARC) is the Australian government’s main agency for allocating research funding to academics and researchers at Australian universities.

Australian Research Council

Its mission is to advance Australia’s capacity to undertake research that brings economic, social, and cultural benefit to the Australian community. The ARC aims to foster excellence, partnerships, and high ethical standards in research and research training in all fields of science, the social sciences, and the humanities. Nmhrc. Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize. The Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize or in short the Leibniz Prize (complete German title "Förderpreis für deutsche Wissenschaftler im Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz-Programm der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft") is a research prize awarded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) every year since 1985 to exceptional scientists and academics working in Germany for their outstanding achievements in the field of research.

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize

The highest endowed research prize in Germany, it consists of a research grant of a maximum of 2.5 million euro, to be used within seven years to improve working conditions, expand research opportunities, provide relief from administrative tasks and assist in the employment of particularly qualified young researchers. Every year, ten Leibniz prizes are awarded.

Macquarie island. Science New Zealand: Home. Government of Western Australia. The formation of the Government of Western Australia is prescribed in its Constitution, which dates from 1890, although it has been amended many times since then.

Government of Western Australia

Since 1901 Western Australia has been a state of the Commonwealth of Australia, and the Australian Constitution regulates its relationship with the Commonwealth. Under the Australian Constitution, Western Australia ceded certain legislative and judicial powers to the Commonwealth, but retained complete independence in all other areas. Western Australia is governed according to the principles of the Westminster system, a form of parliamentary government based on the model of the United Kingdom. Legislative power rests with the Parliament of Western Australia, which consists of the Crown, represented by the Governor of Western Australia, and the two Houses, the Western Australian Legislative Council and the Western Australian Legislative Assembly.

SAHMRI's unveiling kickstarts SA's new health and biomedical precinct. SAHMRI'S seven life-enriching goals. Research at SAHMRI will focus on seven key themes identified as critically important to the State and the world, selected on the basis of health need and existing South Australian research strength.

These research pillars will be interlinked so they can build on each other's advances, and there is also the in-built demand they advance from academic research to clinical trials and drug development, and on to use in the population. This ensures research translates into cures, treatment and preventative medicine. The seven key themes will be led by theme leaders with formidable reputations.

Aboriginal Health. Federation of American Scientists. Geelong biotechnology. Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The Times Higher Education World University Rankings (or THE World University Rankings) are annual world university rankings published by the British magazine Times Higher Education (THE) with data supplied by Thomson Reuters that provides citation database information.

They include both the overall and the subject rankings. Moreover, the additional World Reputation Rankings which are independent of the main rankings have also been released starting from 2011. Originally, the Times Higher Education began publishing the Times Higher Education–QS World University Rankings in 2004 with Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) but they ended their partnership in 2010 and both started to release their own rankings. QS has published its rankings with the old existing methodology as the QS World University Rankings, while Times created and adopted a new one. History[edit] National Institutes of Health.

James Dyson takes on Google with £5m investment in domestic robots. Sir James Dyson is taking on the might of Google by investing £5m in a British university to develop a new generation of "intelligent domestic robots".

His company, best known for its vacuum cleaners, is putting the money into a laboratory at Imperial College London, which has begun hiring up to 15 scientists who will work on developing robot vision systems that could be used in devices such as robot-controlled vacuums – a longstanding ambition of Dyson himself. The inventor said the plan was to create "practical everyday technologies that will make our lives easier". The move could put Dyson into a position where it is directly challenging Google, which has recently acquired eight robotics companies, including Boston Dynamics, which has made self-controlling robots for the US military. In January it spent £400m acquiring DeepMind Technologies, a London-based startup focusing on artificial intelligence. SeaOrbiter.
