Research Collaborations

Researchers interested in undertaking a research project requiring access to Endeavour resources or facilities will be considered by the College on a case-by-case basis. Investigators must submit a Research Expression of Interest form to the Research Management Committee (RMC).

All approved Research Expression of Interest applications are required to obtain ethical clearance from Endeavour’s Human Research Ethics Committee as outlined in the Human Research Ethical Clearance Policy.

The application must include:

  • Information about the team of investigators
  • Brief outline of the intended project
  • Resource or facility access required
  • Ethical considerations
  • Expected outcomes and likely audience
  • Timeline for the project
  • Budget and funding details
  • Endeavour staff required to assist, and the tasks agreed upon
  • Names and details of all people with access to the raw data

Each application will be considered by the RMC on its research merit. Applications requesting access to internal student records will also require approval from the Director responsible for the records of interest. This approval will need to be obtained before the request will be considered by the RMC. Applications which are deemed appropriate will be recommended to College Council. The College Council will consider the application based on the value and implication to Endeavour. Submissions approved by the College Council will then be permitted to submit a project proposal in line with all other research applications. The approval letter issued by the College Council to the team of investigators will be required to be included in the research project proposal submission.

Submitting an application

All applicants should first discuss their intended project with the Office of Research via, followed by a Research Expression of Interest Form.

A detailed description of the application and assessment process for such requests is outlined in the Research Policy.
