Project Summary

The Canning Stock Route is an iconic linear transect of profound importance to a variety of parties: the original

inhabitants of the Western Desert, surveyors and drovers who used it in the 20th century and more recently

tourists and outback adventurers. Systematic documentation, mapping and synthesis of Indigenous cultural values

of the Canning Stock Route will provide a unique resource of benefit to traditional custodians as well as the wider

community. Accurate information on sites, places and landscapes and their cultural and scientific values should

underpin successful management, protection of sites and sustainable use of the Canning Stock Route into the

Project Summary

The project will contribute to the economic and socially sustainable conservation of cultural heritage in Timor

Leste. Collaborative work between project personnel and Timor Leste communities and government agencies will

promote good will, strengthen ties and enhance cross cultural understanding between both countries, as will the

training of Timor Leste nationals in techniques of heritage assessment and management. Communication of the

results of the project will also enhance Australia's understanding of social and cultural issues within Timor Leste

and raise Australia's profile overseas.

Project Summary

Projections of expenditure patterns in retirement which allow for population heterogeneity will provide individuals

with a better appreciation of their income needs and their savings requirements for a comfortable retirement. It will

also enable financial institutions to develop products which better target retirees' needs over the course of

retirement, and in addition it will enable improved assessment of aspects of Government income support policy.

Specifically, understanding the complex interactions between private and public pensions, and concession card

receipt upon expenditure behaviour, will enable more accurate costings of the public support of elderly families as

Australia's population ages.

Project Summary

The most common cause of death in cancer patients is secondary tumours in vital organs. Successful treatment of

liver tumours with regional isotope therapy now offers improved survival rates. This project will research novel

radiolabelled nanoparticles and advanced computer imaging algorithms to improve regional isotope therapy of liver

tumours. It will provide better methods of objective assessment and management that can reduce risk and improve

patient survival.

Project Summary

This project represents an entirely new approach to low temperature crystallization of amorphous silicon, and its

application to TFT fabrication in flat panel displays, and involves a partnership with the Australian high tech

company, WRiota. The research is in a field of high national priority, namely nanotechnology, since the technology is based on materials modification at the nanoscale by nanoindentation. This project will further provide valuable opportunities for a number of research students and ECRs to gain experience in both the industrial and academic worlds and skills needed for Australia's nanotechnology workforce.

Project Summary

Australia will be better protected from terrorism and crime if courts are able to make effective use of high quality

video evidence, both from scientific experts and from key witnesses who cannot be produced in person for security

reasons. Appropriate application of the technology can also increase effective and timely access to justice for

other justice participants including indigenous people in remote communities. The project contributes to the

take up of frontier technologies by developing a best practice model for using video testimony in justice settings,

and identifying the social and environmental conditions necessary for successful implementation.
