The Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator Kim Carr, today announced that 71 research projects will share more than $30 million in funding under the Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) scheme.

The LIEF scheme provides funding for large-scale cooperative initiatives so that expensive infrastructure, equipment and facilities can be shared by researchers in partnered organisations.

“Research infrastructure is the bedrock of good research and a robust innovation system,” Senator Carr said.

“The Australian Government is supporting collaborative research arrangements to ensure that researchers in fields of recognised research potential have access to the infrastructure, equipment and facilities to carry out high-quality research.“The LIEF research projects will see Australian institutions collaborate with national and international higher education, industry and government organisations,” Senator Carr said.
