Dr Sajad Fayezi has recently received a La Trobe Social Research Assistance Platform Grant to the value of $9,199.14. This grant is given out by La Trobe University’s Office of Research Infrastructure.

The La Trobe Social Research Assistance Platform provides individual researchers and teams who are engaged in research projects with specific and specialised research support to facilitate effective completion. The Platform’s Grants aim to optimise the use of research infrastructure, accelerate research outcomes and in turn, enhance the University’s capacity to engage with industry and build research collaborations.

Successful grant applicants will have access to:

  • a manager who will identify and arrange appropriate sessional or contract personnel to provide research support in a timely manner,
  • a needs-assessed grant to cover costs relating to the payment and travel expenses of research assistants.

Dr Sajad Fajezi received the grant for his project titled ‘Assessing Agency Theory: After 40 Years, Lost in the Wilderness or Promising Integrated Theory’. This project is an international collaboration with researchers from University of Pittsburgh and University of Minnesota. The La Trobe Social Research Assistance Platform Grants optimise the use of research infrastructure, accelerate research outcomes and enhance the University’s capacity to engage with industry and build research collaborations.
