The ARC carries out maintenance of its Research Management System (RMS) in order to provide enhanced functionality to the system and to ensure that it remains secure. Outages are not related to the announcements of grants. If the scheduled timing of planned maintenance or updates is expected to clash with key National Competitive Grants Program activities, such as a deadlines for application submissions or rejoinders, we certainly take this into account and the work may be rescheduled to a more suitable time that will cause less interruption for users.

Dr Zoe Doubleday is an ARC Future Fellow working on a unique method to trace the origins of seafood, protecting Australia’s high value seafood industry and providing confidence for consumers. Based at the University of South Australia’s Future Industries Institute, Dr Doubleday measures the chemical composition of tiny bones from the ears of fish and cephalopods (octopus, squid) and from seashells. The precise levels of certain chemicals are controlled by the ocean in which the bone or shell was formed, and so can reveal to us where in the world the animal was living.
