National Competitive Grants Program
During 2005 and 2006 the Australian Research Council (ARC) and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) collaborated in a funding initiative, the Thinking Systems initiative, to address the Australian Government's National Research Priority goals of Breakthrough Science and Frontier Technologies under the National Research Priority Frontier Technologies for Building and Transforming Australian Industries.
The aim of this funding initiative was to support novel, innovative and cross-disciplinary research at some or all of the intersections of neuroscience, genetics, proteomics, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, computer science and information technology which will lead to the generation and application of new knowledge in the development of intelligent machines, robots and information systems and will place Australia at the forefront of this area internationally.
