New research to find novel ways to recover metals from waste and electronics, develop guidelines for the installation of offshore wind turbines, and create new food business opportunities to empower vulnerable communities can get underway with the announcement of research partnerships today.

Australian Research Council (ARC) Chief Executive Officer, Professor Sue Thomas, said five successful innovative research projects totaling $2.4 million were announced today by Minister for Education and Training, Senator the Hon. Simon Birmingham, under the ARC Linkage Projects scheme.

"The Australian Research Council's Linkage Projects scheme supports university-based researchers to engage in essential collaborations with other parts of the innovation system, including industry partners and community organizations," said Professor Thomas.

These important collaborations with their research partners allow researchers in Australian universities to work towards practical solutions to 'real world' industry and community challenges, in practical settings.

"These five projects, to be carried out over the next five years, will involve cash and in-kind support of a further $6.8 million from 12 partner community and industry organizations, in addition to this substantial Australian Government funding support."
