  1. Early childhood education and care - children are engaged in quality early years programs and making positive transitions.
  2. School education - students are engaged in learning, achieving and successfully transitioning to further education, training and work.
  3. Vocational education and training - Queenslanders are skilled to participate successfully in the economy and broader community.
  4. Cross-portfolio - research projects that span two or more of the above categories.
  5. Open - available to previous Education Horizon grant recipients who want to build on their research, partnerships, and investments, with innovative and collaborative programs of research that have demonstrated significant benefit.
