Media Releases

As part of ARC activities to update the Research Management System (RMS), a dynamic Funding Announcements page (round data and project details) and a Funding Announcements table (project details only) have been developed to display the funding outcomes following announcement of awarded grants. These pages are designed to make it easier for users to obtain information following the announcement of the outcomes of an ARC funding round. For more information about the announcement page and how it works please view the information sheet on this website.
