Summary SA Councils can now access PhD placements and support through short term research internships, via a Commonwealth Government supported scheme delivered by Australian Postgraduate Research Intern (APR.Intern).

Supported by the Australian Government, councils and businesses can access a new 50% Australian Government rebate from the cost of an internship.

APR.Intern is Australia’s only all sector – all discipline PhD internship program, transforming Australian businesses through university research collaborations. 

A not-for-profit, the program provides a platform for big businesses, SMEs and government agencies to connect with high-end research expertise via short-term 3-5 month tightly-focused projects. 

For more information, visit the APR.Intern website or read how the Cardinia Shire Council found success with PhD expertise here .

To connect with SA’s local APR.Intern Business Development Advisor, Dr David Beecham, please email d.beecham@aprintern.org.au or call 8121 5770.
