UQ research tops nation in latest round of ARC funding
UQ received funding for 16 projects worth a total of $6.234 million, with research in areas such as making our food and drinks healthier and improving our crop and mining production.
The ARC Linkage Projects scheme aims to develop long-term strategic research alliances between universities and groups such as industry, businesses, and community organizations.
One of the more innovative projects to receive funding is led by Professor Justin Cooper-White from UQ's Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in conjunction with Unilever UK Central Resources Limited. The project has received $240,000 to look at designing foods and drinks that have tailored health and vitality benefits.
