Three Arts projects led by researchers at Monash University have been awarded in the 2019 ARC Linkage round: ‘Measuring the benefits of reuse in the circular economy’ led by Dr Ruth Lane, ‘Ethical, Social and Regulatory Issues in Advanced Prenatal Testing’ led by Professor Catherine Mills, and ‘Deafblind communication: Building professional competencies’ led by Dr Louisa Willoughby.

The Linkage Projects scheme supports projects which initiate and develop long term strategic research alliances to apply advanced knowledge to problems, acquire new knowledge and serve as a basis for securing commercial and other benefits of research.

"I am delighted that three deserving Monash Arts projects have received significant 2019 ARC Linkage grants," says Professor Jo Lindsay, Associate Dean Enterprise. "The diversity of our successful projects reflects the quality, scope and impact of research in the Humanities and Social Sciences at Monash University."

Monash Arts received a total of $1,050,709 across the three projects, which span the diverse fields of environmental history, bioethics and inclusive communication strategies for the deafblind.
