Researchers from ֱ have received more than $3.7 million through the .

ֱ received the highest number of grants and total funding from the ARC in round one of the 2023 scheme.

The seven ֱ projects will support Australian Government research priority areas, from developing new methods of recycling agricultural waste to improving understanding of client-related burnout in healthcare workers.

The funding will enable researchers to enhance the scale and focus of their projects in collaboration with national and international research partners.

ֱ Linkage Projects 2023 round one recipients:

  • will lead research to advance optical systems for biomedical imaging, telecommunications, manufacturing and quantum information processing, establishing new applications and methods for industry.
  • will lead research to develop new commercial opportunities for agricultural waste, advancing technology for low-cost renewable hydrogen production through converting agricultural waste into non-precious metal catalysts.
  • will lead a project to improve how biodiversity is measured and inform better evaluation, restoration and monitoring by developing a data-driven system to describe animal communities.
  • will lead research to improve the processing of copper minerals by developing cost-effective methods to selectively reject waste minerals while increasing production.
  • will lead research to improve the safety and wellbeing of adolescents in out-of-home care by informing policies and practices to support adolescents and reduce the socio-economic burdens on health and justice systems. 
  • will lead research to advance manufacturing of computer chips. The project will develop new processes and equipment for industry, and help train the next generation of Australian researchers.
  • will lead research to inform interventions to reduce burnout and strengthen resilience, engagement and longevity among healthcare workers who treat people with mental health diseases or addiction.

The ARC announced more than $26 million to 50 collaborative research projects across Australia.
