Senator Ian Macdonald asked the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, upon notice, on 12 May 2009:

(a)   For the past 5 years, what Australian Research Council research grants have gone to scientists and researchers associated with work related to climate change; and

(b)   for each of these grants: (i) who was the recipient, (ii) what was the amount, and (iii) what was the short title of the research


Senator Carr (Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research) —The answer to the honourable senator’s question is as follows:

(a)   Details of grants awarded in the past five years under the ARC’s National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP) to projects related to climate change are provided in the table at (b).

(b)   To identify projects either directly or indirectly related to climate change research, a search of projects awarded funding under the NCGP was undertaken using the following search criteria: (i) the keywords ‘climate change’, ‘global warming’ or ‘greenhouse gas’ in the ‘Project title’, ‘Project abstract’ or ‘National Benefit Text’ fields of the application; and (ii) projects that had selected the Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) code of 770101 (climate change) as being relevant to the research. The list of projects identified through this search was then checked for relevance. In addition, a separate search was undertaken of Centres funded through the ARC Centres of Excellence scheme. The details are as at the time research proposals were approved for funding and exclude any post-award variations that may subsequently have been approved.
