Feds provide $334m for university research

Western Australian universities will receive 8 per cent of the $333.5 million in federal government funding announced today to support new research projects nation-wide.

The funding stemmed from Australian Research Council’s (ARC) National Competitive Grants Programme and will be used to support 859 projects.

The projects will cover everything from developing a miniaturised cochlear implant to more secure cloud data to new ways to support small businesses, according to Universities Australia.
