Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that is not addressed below, please contact the QuakeCoRE Support Team via email: quakecore@canterbury.ac.nz.

Who is eligible to apply?

Applications will be accepted from Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE Principal and Associate Investigators, applications will also be considered from researchers that are newly engaged or intending to engage with the 2021 – 2028 Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE Research Programme.

Where can I find the application form?

Application forms, budget templates and guidance on the RfP can be found on our website here: http://www.quakecore.nz/opportunities/.

When is the application deadline?

Applications close at 12PM (noon) on Friday the 15 October, 2021. No late applications will be accepted.


I have applied to another funding programme, but do not yet know the outcome; can I submit a funding request to QuakeCoRE for the same project?

Yes, we appreciate that there are other funding opportunities in the earthquake resilience space that are available. Please indicate on the application which other funding programme(s) you have applied to and specify when you anticipate a funding outcome. If the project receives funding from another source, we ask that you withdraw your Te Hiranga Rū QuakeCoRE funding application immediately. Funding proposals may be withdrawn at any time by emailing quakecore@canterbury.ac.nz


What is an example of a deliverable, how is this different from the activities that I will do as part of the project?

A project deliverable should be specific and directly related to the objectives of your project, deliverables should be measureable and represent a completed component of the project. It is assumed that all projects will present a poster at the QuakeCoRE Annual Meeting and seek to  publish the research in a peer reviewed publication research paper, whilst these can be included as part of a project deliverables, focus should remain on those project specific outputs that relate directly to the research objectives of the project. Some examples of deliverables which are clearly aligned to a project proposal’s objectives are listed below:

Example 1

Objective: Develop and experimentally validate a low-cost, robust viscous damper that offers custom, design-specific viscous damping in any one (or more) quadrants of the force-displacement response plot.

Deliverable: Two manufactured device prototype designs with costing; one stepped cylinder design and a single diameter cylinder.

Example 2

Objective: Utilize full 3D waveform tomography to iteratively improve the version 1.0 Canterbury velocity model using over 250 events in the Mw 3.0 – 4.5 range.

Deliverable: Complete Version 2 of the Canterbury Velocity model based on F3DT methodology.
