In the United States a "PI" is a principal investigator. This is someone who leads grant applications. What does "PI" mean in Australia?

In Australia, "PI" means partner investigator. This is someone who is involved in a grant application but is not eligible for funding. For example, they might be an international collaborator.

A grant applicant is a "Chief Investigator" or "CI."
