Ways to support this work

This work is funded by the public via direct donations. There are three usual methods of donation depending on the needs of the donor.

Privacy and your donation

Whether a donor is an individual or an organisation, I take privacy issues seriously. For this reason unless I am given specific instructions about who a donor is and that you are happy for me to share publicly that you are a patron of my work I do not thank individual donors publicly.

Having said this, I believe that the best advertisement for my work is your support. It is much easier for people to believe others when they speak about the value of my work than when I make my own claims about it. Your willingness to share the reason you support my work is what inspires other people to support my work. Please take a moment every now and then and, if you are happy to be seen publicly supporting my work, share that you do with your networks.

About this Project

With new Ministers announced regularly, this Commonwealth Grants project maps each Minister against the grants made during their tenure in any given position. A new Minister (or occasionally an entire Ministry) has been published on average every eight weeks since the beginning of the 2017-18 financial year (mid 2017). I've created a new dataset with these positions and dates to map both budget data (which operates on a financial year) and Commonwealth the grants that each agency claims are coming out of annual budget appropriations.

Portfolios are the administrative lines drawn between specific agencies and responsible Ministers. Each Portfolio administers specific agencies and those agencies can only spend funding appropriated through Parliament and documented in the Portfolio Budget Statements published on budget night or the MYEFO updates each December or Portfolio Additional Estimate Statements published in February.

Portfolio names change when Administrative Arragement Orders are made by the presiding government. This can change the portfolio to which an agency is attributed or the Minister responsible. The Prime Minister, Scott Morrison announced significant changes to the Portfolios and agencies they administed which came into effect on 1, February 2020.

At launch, only grants published since GrantsConnect went live in January 2018 are included in the data. This means that only one full financial year is covered in the data, with the 2019-20 financial year still unfolding at this point. Commonwealth grants data contains agency and program names as per the budget documents published in budget night. I have integrated these datasets despite the challenges posed by Administrative Arrangement Orders made after budget night. Given the intention of this project is to link grant decisions with resposnible Ministers, queries are based on the approval date in each grant notice as opposed to the publication date.

Publication date is based on start date of the grant and can vary substantially from the approval date. Grants are republished at a later date where variations have been made. If there is a significant time difference between grant approval and variation, different Ministers and governments can be responsible for those variations.

Commonwealth grants data has been published at GrantsConnect since Jan 2018 under the CC By 3.0 licence.

There are several dates in Commonwealth grants data: approval date, publication date, start-end dates and the budget/financial year from which each grant is appropriated. According to Department of Finance media, publication is required by the approving agency on GrantConnect 'no later than twenty-one calendar days after the grant agreement takes effect '.

The date of effect [start date] will depend on the particular arrangement. It can be the date on which a grant agreement is executed or a specified starting date. Where there is no grant agreement, the date of effect can be for example, the date of first payment or the announcement of a successful grantee.
The approval date for reporting purposes is the date that the decision-maker makes a decision to award a grant. Where, for example, negotiating a grant agreement takes some time, there may be a delay between the approval date and the date that the grant award information is published.

Where approval, publication and budget years vary significantly this is likely due to the grant being republished in a later year with a variation or delays in the start of the grant. Variation status and reason is not included in GrantConnect download data but is published at the source (GrantConnect) if you click on the button in the Grants tab.

In order to match with budget data, drill-down at this site is based on the financial year (year of budget appropriations) from which the grant was taken, not the year of grant publication. Budget year can vary from approval and publication years.

PurposeAddressing suicides in public places that have become known as ‘suicide hotspots’ is critical. We will examine which interventions work at hotspots, how and why they work, whether particular features are key to their success, whether they work best in combination with other interventions, whether they have unintended consequences, and whether they are cost-effective. Our research will culminate in a resource that provide practical guidance about how best to deal with suicide hotspots.

PurposeThis project aims to explore the post-war architectural, rural and industrial landscapes of Australia as shaped by the labour of displaced persons. Migrants after the Second World War were critical to the spatial making of modern Australia. Major federally-funded industries driving post-war nation-building programs depended on the employment of large numbers of war-displaced persons. While the immigrant contribution to nation-building in cultural terms is well-known, its everyday spatial, architectural and landscape transformations remain unexamined. This project aims to bring to the foreground post-war industry and immigration to comprehensively document a how Australia has uniquely shaped its built environment.

PurposeThis proposal aims to assess the impact of geographical and genetic isolation of the Australian Indigenous population on adaptive and innate immune systems. The project will use novel DNA sequencing approaches to generate the high resolution sequences of two genetic loci that regulate innate and adaptive immune responses, the major histocompatibility complex locus and the killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor locus. In an initial screen, distinct variants and combinations of these genes were identified. This project aims to interrogate how variation in these critical genes impacts on the function of cytotoxic lymphocytes, providing insights into the evolutionary drivers of immune recognition mechanisms.

PurposeThis project aims to generate new knowledge of institutional reform in the late Roman republic and the relevance of reform as a concept in ancient Rome. By analysing how Romans spoke and wrote about reform and examining a variety of particular reform efforts, the project seeks evidence of a Roman reform discourse and reform processes capable of producing structural change. Expected outcomes include fresh understanding of republican governance and an alternative to the conventional view that the republic fell because of its inability to reform itself. This project should benefit the study of Roman history and foster dialogue with interdisciplinary scholarship which has questioned the reformability of ancient societies; it thus also informs the understanding of reform in contemporary societies.

PurposeThis project aims to undertake a comprehensive and comparative investigation of governance and enforcement in the charitable sector in Australia. Public trust in the charitable sector has been damaged by governance failures, particularly in religious contexts, exacerbated by the sector's complex and incoherent governance system. As yet, there has been limited academic consideration or empirical analysis of the effectiveness of the governance and regulatory framework of the sector or concrete reform proposals. This project aims to undertake comparative analysis and empirical research of these aspects, and to develop proposals for effective law and policy reform. This is expected to strengthen and maximise the sector's capacity to contribute to the social and economic life in Australia.

PurposeThis project aims to develop novel membrane support materials and novel membrane structures to enhance chemical separation processes. These materials can be used in desalination and water treatment, reducing the resistance to water flows. In turn, this will reduce the energy required to produce fresh drinking water for Australians, as well as the cost. The approach will also be applied to carbon dioxide capture from flue gas streams, increasing the energy efficiency of these processes, so that they can become economically viable. The project has the potential to develop localised manufacturing operations to produce these materials, adding value to Australian manufactured products.

PurposeThis project aims to use matchstick grasshoppers as a model system to develop strategies and protocols for maximising the adaptive potential of species when movement of individuals or genes is required. Biodiversity management increasingly requires translocation or targeted gene flow to maintain genetic diversity, raising the issue of disrupting local environmental adaptations. Matchstick grasshoppers are extremely well understood genetically, are highly amenable to experimental investigation, and include populations and species threatened by habitat destruction. This project will generate novel conservation tools for the focal species as well as empirical precedents for resolving the problem of environmental mismatch in translocation.

PurposeThis proposal aims to develop a framework for statistical modelling that integrates across spatial scales and disentangles the processes of environmental tolerance, biotic interactions and dispersal. Understanding the processes that drive species distributions and ecological communities is central to ecology and environmental management. This knowledge can be used to anticipate the impacts of environmental change on ecosystems, and the likely benefits of interventions. Current statistical models limit the data that can be used and the ecological questions that can be answered. This project expects to improve our ability to predict species distributions under changed environments given interacting species and dispersal across the landscape.

PurposeThis project aims to provide a new understanding of the emergence of classical tragedy by reassessing how classical Latin drama was revived in 14th century Europe after a long period of neglect. Classical tragedy, which incorporates the myths of the Graeco-Roman world in its fabric, was virtually unknown from late antiquity until the high middle ages when the tragedies of Seneca became popular. In the early 14th century, commentaries by Albertino Mussato and Nicholas Trevet allowed a new readership access to these complex ancient works; this analysis also provides new insights into trends of popularity across the ages.-Using recent advances in digitisation technology and scholarship, the project will establish a model for research into the history of the book, the image, and text.

PurposeThis project aims to answer questions about how plants can sustain their growth on salty soils. Plant-derived products constitute a pillar for our society. However, crop yields may be severely penalised due to unfavourable growth conditions, including soil salinity. This is particularly relevant for Australia as a large fraction of its arable land is affected by salt. This project aims to use molecular and cell biology techniques to resolve mechanisms of how the synthesis of cellulose, which constitutes the bulk of a plant's biomass, is maintained in plants during salt stress. This project has potential for climate change mitigation, enhanced plant biomass production and improved fuel security.

PurposeThis project aims to increase our understanding of the role of glycine receptor-mediated signalling and its metabolism in the amino acid sensing capacity of mTORC1, a key enzyme regulating muscle protein synthesis.-Ageing is associated with a progressive decline in skeletal muscle mass, weakness, and impaired regeneration after injury. Impaired anabolic signalling after food intake has been proposed as a key contributor, yet the metabolic pathways responsible for nutrient sensing and regulation of protein synthesis remain unresolved. The project will assess defective amino acid sensing and protein synthesis in old mammals, identifying the role of glycine signalling in these processes.

PurposeThis project aims to delineate how a protein modification that consists of the addition of a small sugar to cellular proteins, known as O-GlcNAcylation, provides a link between metabolism and complex cell functions. The model for these studies is a cell type of the immune system known as dendritic cells. Upon encountering pathogens these cells undergo metabolic changes that increase the rate of O-GlcNAcylation of proteins involved in immune responses, altering their function. This project will study how O-GlcNAcylation works and is regulated. The project expects to develop new technology and provide high-level training, increasing the competitiveness of the strategic biotechnology sector in Australia

PurposeThis project aims to produce validated methods for creating human-centred explanations of decisions made by artificial intelligence (AI). Trial deployment of AI devices has resulted in the requirement for explanations of how AI makes decisions, where developed AI systems gave insufficient consideration of how decision logic would be explained to people. This project positions 'explainable AI' within the intersection of human-computer interaction, computer science and cognitive psychology. The expected outcomes of this project are new methods, models and algorithms for explaining different types of AI models to people. This project should result in improved understanding and trust of decisions made by AI systems, mitigating some societal concerns about AI-based decision making.

PurposeThis project aims to identify new physics in quantum magnets and emergent phenomena in solids where the electrons are strongly coupled and intertwined in a complex manner. As a consequence, quantum effects are dramatically enhanced and, in certain situations, force the electrons to split into different exotic particles. Expected outcomes of this project include identification of suitable physical systems, candidate materials and appropriate conditions required for the experimental observation of this phenomena with neutron scattering methods. Such particles host an unexplored potential for future electronic devices and might be key for next generation technologies. The advanced materials and exotic particles identified in this project will inform the development of next generation technologies, becoming the quantum bits in future quantum computers.

PurposeThis project aims to map out the complex evolution of the Earth's ocean ecosystems and oxygenation using marine carbonates. The oxygenation of Earth's surface is one of the most profound processes to shape the planet, affecting all biological and geological systems. However, uncertainties remain in the timing of oxygenation and how it relates to the evolution of life. This project will develop our understanding of how Earth has remained habitable through significant intervals of environmental change. Using the geology of Australia, and elsewhere, this project is expected to derive the oxygenation evolution of ancient seawater and its effect on reef ecosystems during critical intervals of Earth's history.

PurposeThis project aims to investigate the ways in which states, international organisations, and international communities have engaged with the -world ocean- as a natural environment from the 1950s to the 2000s. In the context of current environmental and geopolitical challenges for the ocean, this project will analyse how these actors built institutions, communities, and territories in and for the ocean environment as a foundation for generating knowledge and claiming power, rights, and resources. By understanding the structures and origins of contemporary ocean ideas, spaces, and institutions, this project aims to benefit current efforts to create resilient ocean environments and communities at the international scale.
ActivityAn international environmental history of the 'world ocean', 1950s-2000s
