ARC Research Successes at ECU for 2011

Friday, 29 October 2010


The Australian Research Council (ARC) has recently announced the successful applications for Linkage and Discovery grants commencing in 2011.

It gives me great pleasure to congratulate our fine researchers on being awarded ARC Discovery grants as follows:

  • Professor David Allen and Dr Robert Powell together with their research team have been awarded $369,431 over three years for their project 'New methods for modelling and forecasting risk';
  • Professor Lelia Green partnering with Dr Leslie Haddon has been awarded $145,000 for the project 'Parents or peers: which group most affects the experiences of young people online, and how?'; and
  • Professor Mark Hackling as Chief Investigator on Deakin University’s project 'Exploring quality primary education in different cultures: a cross-national study of teaching and learning in primary science classrooms'. ECU’s Dr Karen Murcia is also a member of this research team, which has been awarded $310,000 over three years.

I also congratulate Professor Craig Standing on being awarded an ARC Linkage grant with former ECU colleague Professor Raj Gururajan for their project 'Managing knowledge in telehealth projects: creating better solutions and improving patient care'. This grant is valued at $90,000 over three years.

The results of these highly competitive ARC grant allocations prove that our University is advancing well in our research performance. Congratulations to David, Robert, Lelia, Mark, Karen and Craig on these outstanding achievements - and for leading the way!
