Access for LIEF Partners
The Australian Research Council's Linkage Infraststructure, Equipment and Facilities funding program
usually involves cash contributions from partner institutions towards the cost of major equipment.
Users from LIEF partner institutions who contribute funds towards equipment that is located at the BMSF can access the BMSF at the same
net hourly academic access rate as UNSW users. These users receive a discount equal to the
UNSW discount until the LIEF equipment is decommisioned or the sum of discounts received by the partner institution exceeds its cash contribution by 25%.
In addition to receiving the above benefits in access, projects supervised by Chief Investigators on successful LIEF grants that fund equipment located at the BMSF may have booking privileges on the LIEF equipment. This will depend on individual circumstances but where possible priority access will be provided when needed.
