Now in its third year, the Impact Seed Funding program provides an opportunity for early career researchers at Flinders to facilitate their own research, develop their leadership capabilities, and build their reputation both as a supervisor and a researcher.
‘Receiving the Impact Seed Funding is a wonderful beginning to my research career,’ says Dr McEvoy-May.
‘Having recently completed my PhD, it’s an extremely valuable stepping stone, especially in such a competitive industry. It will enable the work necessary to capture larger funding sources and launch my work into the scientific community.’
Nurtured through Flinders University’s Impact Seed Funding program, the research of nearly 30 innovative early career researchers is tackling global challenges and making an important contribution to our community.
