Support mechanisms for collaborations

CROSSING is an international, multidisciplinary lab. We have established the following mechanisms to support the development of innovative approaches to problems around humans-autonomous agents teaming, and to strengthen scientific collaboration between France and Australia. Please contact us for more details of any schemes, or to receive further details of how to apply.


CROSSING supports internships for undergraduate and postgraduate students, for a minimum of 6 weeks of stipend. New topics will be posted on the website, but please feel free to contact us to discuss a topic.

PhD and postdoctoral fellow packages

PhD students and postdoctoral fellows at CROSSING are eligible for an annual package to support costs associated with their research, which could include conference travel, travel between France and Australia for scientific collaboration, small equipment and publication costs, or other associated costs.

Visitor packages

CROSSING has funds to support visits from scientists for short and long stays. We especially encourage early to mid career researchers to consider a visit to CROSSING.

Small funds to support new projects

New projects or applications for grants that are aligned with the CROSSING roadmap and involve a CROSSING member are eligible to apply for funds to support data collection or the establishment of new collaborations.
