2017 Grant Recipients
In 2017 we released a funding pool of $2m and received 23 applications from researchers and institutions. This was the third round of grant funding released by the Foundation and brought the total of funding allocated to $6m.
Grant applications were assessed by our Scientific Advisory Panel - comprised of international and national experts in the area. The panel made recommendations to the board as to who the successful applicants should be and these were accepted unanimously.
