OVER $1.4 MILLION FOR UNIQUE RESEARCH PROJECTS

The Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator Kim Carr, today announced more than $1.4 million over three years for five vital research projects under the Linkage Learned Academies Special Projects scheme.

“The Rudd Government is committed to supporting Australian research and providing high-achieving academic groups with the funds and flexibility needed to get results,” Senator Carr said.

“Members of the Learned Academies are esteemed scholars whose talent and unique experience allow us to tackle some of the more difficult issues facing Australia.

“This $1.4 million investment will enable the Learned Academies to undertake research projects that will help us:

  • understand the social consequences affecting our children as a result of the economic downturn (The Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia); • achieve an environmentally sustainable and socially equitable way of living by 2050 (The Australian Academy Science);
  • raise the profile of interdisciplinary research, which is helping to achieve a sustainable Australia (National Academies Forum/Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering);
  • improve collaboration and policy research in the humanities (The Australian Academy of the Humanities); and
  • learn how sustainable resource management can enable environmentally responsible economic growth (Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering).”
