AusAID Development Research Awards Scheme 2012 Funding Round
AusAID is pleased to announce the results of the 2012 AusAID Development Research Awards Scheme (ADRAS) Funding Round, with 50 grants totalling $32.9 million over three years awarded for the following themes:
- Disability-inclusive development
- Mining for development
- Water, sanitation and hygiene.
Following the Government’s announcement on 17 December 2012 to reprioritize resources within the aid budget, there has been a reduction in funding of the Health priority theme in the AusAID Development Research Awards Scheme for 2012, resulting in a deferral of funding until 2013-14.
Applications were called for in July 2012. There was a very positive response with 581 applications received across the eight themes.
AusAID was pleased to receive applications from a wide range of research organisations and from a variety of countries, especially from throughout the Asia Pacific region.
ADRAS Research Selection Committees shortlisted 102 applications, which were then externally peer reviewed, with comments also received from AusAID program staff. Read feedback from the Research Selection Committees on each theme.
For full details and a summary of the research, see the list of 2012 ADRAS Award Recipients.
It is anticipated that the next round will be in 2014, with information being made available on this website by end 2013. For general information about research, please contact email@example.com.
