The benefits of becoming a centre participant include:

- promotion of your expertise and activities on our website
- promotion and communication of research projects and outputs, funding opportunities, external projects, visitors, jobs and other activities related to data science
- increased opportunity for joint grant submissions, co-supervision of students and collaborative research
- invitation to participate in research activities, seminar series, external networking events
- access to competitive funding for working groups, think tanks, visitors and postgraduate awards
- shared collaborative workplaces for postgraduate and early career researchers
- opportunities to engage with experts in data science.
You will be expected to engage actively in centre activities, report each semester on relevant activities and outputs, and acknowledge the centre in relevant outputs where appropriate. Participation will be reviewed on an annual basis, with renewal contingent on active engagement. Participation in this Centre does not preclude nor constrain participation in any other Centre or research concentration at QUT.
