The International Special Skills Institute’s International Fellowship Program
The International Specialised Skills Institute’s International Fellowship program supports a large number of Australian and international leaders across a broad range of industries to undertake applied research that will benefit economic development through vocational training, industry innovation and advancement.
In the last 25 years, the International Specialised Skills Institute has provided fellowships to over 350 people through its ‘International Applied Research Fellowship Program’.
This evaluation project will assess the impact of the Fellowship Program in the last 25 years, with a particular focus on the benefits of the Fellowship to the individual, the flow-on benefits to the specific sectors in which fellows were involved in, and the Fellowship’s contribution to policy change and society (the community).
Overall, the evaluation will assess the return on investment of the International Applied Research Fellowship Program.
