Monash University’s innovative Graduate Research Industry Partnership (GRIP) program brings high-achieving PhD candidates together with industry partners to solve real-world problems.
In 2017 Monash identified the need for behavioural experts worldwide and, with the Monash Sustainable Development Institute and BehaviourWorks Australia, it launched the first-ever Behaviour Change GRIP.
Eighteen talented students were initially offered scholarships, which today involves seven industry partners (below), who are working with 15 candidates on a range of important social, environmental and organisational challenges (see below).
The candidates, who are aiming to meet their 2021 milestones (which may be extended due to COVID-19), are supported by 43 supervisors from a range of Monash faculties. The support structures and professional training opportunities that have been developed and offered to the students have helped to make this into an award-winning program. We are always open to working with new partners, so please contact us if you would like to get involved.
