Posted by gmarkets on 19 September, 2007

Australia’s peak research funding body wanted more scientists to apply for grants to study climate change issues, reported The Courier Mail (15/9/2007, p. 34). Broadened portfolio desirable: Professor Margaret Sheil, the new head of the Australian Research Council, said the growing recognition of the prob­lems associated with climate change would open up many avenues of study. “If you look at some of our flagships, our centres of excellence, there probably aren’t enough there in some of the more recent issues around the environ­ment, around water, around energy, so we’ll be looking to broaden our portfolio in that respect in the next centres round,” Professor Sheil said.
