The Privacy Good Research Fund offers funding support to researchers worth in total up to $75,000. Successful applicants will receive funding of up to $25,000 for individual projects.

The Fund is open for applications from 15 July to 9 September 2019.

Applications are welcome for research projects that develop new privacy-related knowledge, provide practical solutions, or promote innovation. 

The Fund also welcomes research that will support organisational experiences in improving practice in data privacy and ethics, using the Data Protection and Use Policy as the implementation example.
