About Pawsey Partner Scheme
The Pawsey Partner Scheme supports the Pawsey partner institutions: CSIRO, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, and the University of Western Australia. It provides significant amounts of compute time for meritorious projects led by researchers from these institutions.
Staff from Western Australian Government Agencies who are conducting research or development are considered as being from the Pawsey Partners, for the purpose of being eligible to access Pawsey services under the Partner Share.
The applications will be open only for Setonix CPU partition allocations.
