Curtin University: Curtin research boosted by more than $3.7 million in ARC funding

The ten successful Curtin DP research teams will delve into a range of diverse topics including unlocking Earth’s fossil archives, exploring clean energy production, the social and justice impacts of drug use and whether money really motivates work performance, Curtin’s successful Linkage Project will look to improve building safety by the early detection of structural conditions.

Curtin University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Professor Chris Moran congratulated the Curtin researchers on their funding success.

“These ARC grants are highly sought-after and specifically support research that promises to deliver significant value to Australia and contributing to global challenges. I congratulate all of our researchers involved in them,” Professor Moran said.

“Each of the successful Curtin projects is unique and together they cover a range of important issues – including research which will have benefits for the Australian construction industry, tackling modern societal challenges in healthy ageing and neurodegenerative diseases and supporting the future development of reliable, low cost and clean energy.”

The ARC Discovery Projects scheme aims to expand the knowledge base and research capacity in Australia as well as the country’s economic, commercial, environmental, social and cultural benefits.

The Linkage Program promotes national and international research partnerships to encourage the transfer of skills, knowledge and ideas.
