LIEF2024 VicLIEF expressions of interest

Each year the Victorian Universities (see participating universities below) run a combined Expression of Interest (EOI) process for the LIEF scheme to strengthen the competitiveness of submissions and eliminate duplication of applications for similar infrastructure/equipment. Accordingly, the DVCR’s request that EOIs are submitted for any potential LE24 bids where either:

  • ·        a VIC-based university is leading the application, or
  • ·        a VIC-based CI is participating on a bid led by an interstate university.

The EOI form is available via the Smarty Grants system which this year is hosted by the University of Melbourne on behalf of the following participating universities: Monash University, Deakin University, Federation University Australia, La Trobe University, RMIT University, Swinburne University, University of Melbourne, University of Tasmania and Victoria University.

NOTE: The VicLIEF EOI is in addition to the FedUni internal Notice of Intent (NoI) form
