This is the lowest inclusion rate of collecting organisations in Australian Research Centre (ARC) National Competitive Grant Program grants since we've kept records (2011). The single project between the Australian National Maritime Museum, the National Museum of Australia, and Museum Victoria and ten research intensive institutions is to research a dome-based immersive projecting environment.
This round includes funding for Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) (with industry), Discovery Projects (DP), Discovery Early Career Researcher (DE), and Discovery Indigenous (DI) grant categories, as well as Centres of Excellence.
The overall amount awarded for cultural heritage related research is keeping pace with results in the last year. Using our usual selection criteria we have identified over $14 million in grants for projects from 2015 (depending on grant type). LIEF and DP grants are around half of their November 2013 values, while DE grants have increased by $1 million and DI grants have increased more than four times. No new relevant Centres of Excellence were announced.
