The 17th round of the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) funding has opened, and will close on the 3rd July 2014. Successful applicants will commence operations on July 2015. The CRC program is an Australian Government Initiative which supports research collaborations to address major challenges facing Australia. Funding has been awarded to projects in the health industry previously.
One of the successful applicants from the 16th round was the Cancer Therapeutics CRC, which will receive over $34 million to have its program extended. The Cancer Therapeutics CRC aims to discover new drugs for major cancers. The HEARing CRC program has also been extended, with $28 million in funding to deliver the next generation of hearing technologies including cochlear implants with enhanced capabilities.
