Support for the partnerships

AMSI provides support for partnerships under the MPE Network, this support includes:

  • A central website with information about the network and a platform for sharing ideas and resources
  • An annual MPE Network scientific meeting, bringing Agency and university partners together to share research and build networks
  • The opportunity to attend and speak with students at AMSI flagship programs

Planning your partnership

We suggest nominated agency and university contacts work together to map out a plan for the first five semesters.  This will help match agency and university goals and provide guidance for participants.

Start by looking at the first period, what it will become in the second period and what that might turn into in 2 – 5 years.

Outline timeline

This timeline provides suggestions on the type of activities that you may wish to consider, it is for guidance only and to show the potential for development of the partnership and should not be read as an expectation for each partnership.

Our hope is that each partnership will be established and grow in alignment with the specific priorities and goals of the partners.

A period may be taken to be a either a semester or a year.
