Director's Message

I am delighted to share that yesterday the Minister for Education, Simon Birmingham, announced that CEPAR would be refunded through to 2023. We have been awarded $27.25M over 
seven years from the Australian Research Council and, in addition, university, government and industry partners will contribute over $40M in cash and in kind support. CEPAR is one of three Centres of Excellence at UNSW to receive funding in this round and one of only nine nationwide. We are the only centre in the Social Sciences to be successful in this round of funding. more

Highlights included presentations by CEPAR Advisory Board Chair, Marc de Cure, and Associate Investigator Hazel Bateman on strategies to engage with stakeholders to ensure effective translation of research findings.
