In addition to partnering with an international organisation, applicants may also partner with another Victorian organisation.

Can my Research Project engage either a new or existing partner?

Yes, the purpose of the GVEIA program is to engage with new or stimulate existing partnerships which may have become stagnant over time.

Can I submit an application for funding of an existing Project?
The GVEIA aims to support partnerships between Victorian EdTech companies, education institutions and international organisations, to test and promote efficacy of Victorian EdTech products for export growth. These programs could take the form of either:
  • NEW LINE with an international partner and/or
  • DISTINCT NEW PHASE of an existing project with an international partner

Can an international campus of an Australian Educational University count as an international partner?

For the purposes of testing the efficacy of an EdTech product with international students offshore, this would be sufficient however the organisation would need to be a separate business entity and the funding can not be used to cover business as usual activities.
