The UTS faculties of Science, Law and Engineering and IT have dominated the latest Australian Research Council (ARC) funding rounds, with the awarding of 15 Discovery Projects and Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards (DECRA) totalling more than $5 million.
UTS was one of just two universities to receive more than one grant for law, with the Law Research Centre in the Faculty of Law receiving three Discovery Projects.
In the Faculty of Engineering and IT, the Centre for Quantum Computation & Intelligent Systems also secured three Discovery Project grants for its world-leading research in pure and applied quantum research.
The Plant Functional Biology and Climate Change Cluster (C3) in the Faculty of Science achieved two DECRA and one Discovery Project successes, recognising the strength across the board of C3's leading team of international and esteemed researchers underpinned by young postdoctoral fellows, PhD and honours students.
