PurposeCQUniversity Australia and the National Agricultural Technology Institute of Argentina (INTA) are combining their skills to tackle a major challenge for cattle producers in need of more precise information about the performance of their stock. They will work together with agri-tech firm DataMuster, which has developed software that links on-farm sensor hardware - walk-over-weigh scales, vision recognition, water flow meters and communications systems - and automatically analyses data for presentation on a simple web platform. DataMuster provides cattle producers with the critical information they need for more timely and precise management decisions on stocking rates, mustering and marketing dates, feed availability, and animal health treatments. By partnering with researchers at CQUni and INTA, it is hoped that DataMuster can be enhanced to automatically measure the amount of grain consumed by individual animals in a feedlot. This data is vital to cattle producers selecting and breeding the most feed efficient animals - that is, stock which convert the least amount of grass and grain into the maximum amount of beef in the shortest period. The team will also engage with livestock hardware manufacturers and retailers in Australia and Argentina to ensure the technology can become readily available to farmers in both countries.

PurposeThe Australia-Colombia Policy Dialogue is an independent, non-partisan and non-exclusively academic, diplomatic initiative led by Charles Sturt University to gather experienced voices from Australia and Colombia to exchange views on the future of Australian-Colombian bilateral relations. While being led by the Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security (AGSPS) at Charles Sturt University (CSU), the dialogue will not be exclusively focused on law enforcement-related issues, nor will it involve the exclusive participation of academics or universities' representatives. The dialogue will focus on four key strategic issues that bring Australia and Colombia together, namely, trade, with a specific focus on mining; connectivity, also with a special emphasis on tourism, transportation, and people-to-people initiatives; education, with an emphasis on research and international student exchanges and security, with a special focus on transnational organised crime, border security and law-enforcement diplomacy. Sessions will be held in the context of the current FTA negotiations between both the countries of the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru); the changing international order; the rising influence of China both in the Indo-Pacific and Latin America, and the 2017 Australian Foreign Policy White Paper.

PurposeThe signing of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) in 2015 marked a new era in Australia-China diplomatic, trade and business relation. ChAFTA encompasses large amounts of original English and Chinese import/export regulatory materials such as tariff classification and rules of origin. Navigating through the new set of complex bilateral trade regulations of the ChAFTA poses a significant challenge to Australian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) which could benefit most from the ChAFTA. This project aims to provide a practical solution to the pressing issue of the accessibility of ChAFTA materials for Australian SMEs. This highly innovative and strategic project will design and implement an interactive bilingual document information search system, which contains and facilitates the search for high-quality bidirectional Chinese-English translations of import/export regulations by trade authorities in both countries to provide much-needed practical aids for Australian SMEs to reap the benefits of this monumental trade agreement.

PurposeNew and emerging organisations attempting to enter the China market are faced with several challenges. These include a lack of access to successful entrepreneurs and a network with knowledge and experience in the China market, and a lack of understanding of local market dynamics, consumer behaviour and market-entry options. The project will provide Australian organisations with the skills, tools and network to engage with China. Haymarket HQ (HHQ) seeks to provide in-depth education and economic diplomacy for improved cultural literacy, engagement, trade and investment links between Australia and both first-tier and second, third and fourth-tier locations across China. As part of this project the HHQ's Bamboo Academy China will launch a six-month accelerator program that delivers six practical, short and targeted modules delivered at HHQ and streamed live across Australia and Greater China. The program will involve high social media engagement and will be facilitated by experienced entrepreneurs to nurture and mentor the next generation of Australian businesses into China.

PurposeA report completed by the Regional Australia Institute in 2015 suggested the Councils in the Namoi region could influence economic growth if they focused on six levers. The list of levers included: engaging in international markets, supporting agriculture and innovation and to commence branding and marketing to position the region. Agriculture is the Namoi region's primary industry and the region is renown for beef, lamb, wool, cotton, grains, dairy and timber. The global demand for food and agriculture is well documented. In March 2018, the Councils signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate on trade, investment and opportunity with the Ningbo Agricultural Bureau. The Ningbo region has a population of 7.5 million people, with a large Government owned bond warehouse and is the largest seaport in China. This next phase of the project will build the Government-to-Government relationship and develop bilateral trade opportunities between businesses.

Purpose"Xiao Lu: Then and Now" is a solo exhibition by the pre-eminent Chinese artist presented by 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and will be a key visual art event in Sydney Festival's 2019 program. The exhibition will present recent performance works, a new commission, and archival materials relating to the artist's seminal installation/performance work "Dialogue" (1988-1989) in the landmark "China/Avant-Garde" exhibition at the National Art Gallery, Beijing (opened 5 February 1989). Xiao Lu's impromptu performance - firing two gunshots at her work, which precipitated the temporary closure of the exhibition - was one of a small number of works by women included in the large exhibition regarded as a climax of the artistic experimentation that had taken place during the 1980s. The exhibition and associated performances and public programs will examine Xiao Lu's practice and life trajectory, including her extended period of residence in Sydney and ongoing connection to Australia.

PurposeThis project aims to establish an informal trilateral Australia-China research network on the Pacific, which will draw together leading experts from universities/research institutes in Australia, China and the Pacific Island Countries. Its first workshop will be convened at ANU and a network directory will be produced. As the Pacific region is of great importance to Australia and China has substantially increased its presence in the region, how to understand China's activities in the region and engage with China has strong policy relevance for the Australian government. This trilateral research network will be the first of its kind globally and will work to increase Australia's understanding of China in the Pacific. In preparation for the establishment of this network, the project will conduct a thorough investigation of current research about Oceania in Chinese universities and research institutions. This research component will be mainly funded by project partners in China.

PurposeThe translation of a literary work encompasses both the translation of a literary text and the translation of a culture. This project examines Australian literary texts circulating in mainland China via translation. It identifies the trends, norms and perceptions pertaining to Australia's literary contributions in mainland China. The analysis will address why certain authors/genres/themes/translators are favoured, and whether the dissemination of cultural exports via events such as Australian Writers' Week in China influence the formation of attitudes towards Australia in the Chinese market. Interviews with key figures such as translators youth dialogue and publishers will help to ascertain whether any situational factors, such as author/translator agency, have a role to play. The outcomes will assist in an enhanced understanding of (a) how to promote Australian literature to Chinese publishers and Chinese readers, and in turn (b) how Australian publishers can market their texts for translation into Chinese.

PurposeThis project aims to showcase how Australian cities and regions can derive economic, cultural and educational benefits from 'sister-city' relationships with China through a survey and six in-depth case studies. Australian local governments have played a pivotal role in establishing 83 sister-city relationships with China over the last 40 years. Despite the potential benefits of such relationships to their local communities and businesses, little is known about the benefits and level of exchange these relationships have generated. To foster long-term sister-city relationships, it is important to identify current challenges, best practice strategies and capability development of city councils through systematic investigation. The first stage of this project will survey Australian city councils that have Chinese sister-city agreements to gauge the challenges, engagement and benefits of these relationships. In the second stage, we will undertake six case studies of successful relationships to identify best practice approaches of city councils.

PurposeThe Art Gallery of New South Wales will present cultural treasures from the National Palace Museum, Taiwan (NPM), supported by a suite of educational programs and a publication providing rich insights into ancient Chinese history and culture for Australian audiences. The exhibition ' Heaven and Earth in Chinese Art: Treasures from the National Palace Museum, Taipei' marks the first collaboration between the National Palace Museum and an Australian cultural institution. This rare exchange will highlight over 80 treasures from the National Palace Museum's imperial collection, to explore the ancient ideology of 'Tian Ren He Yi', or a divine link between humans and nature. Supporting programs are being carefully developed with Asian institutes and diaspora communities to be authentic and respectful across age, gender, cultural background and level of interest. They will feature an academic symposium, Lunar New Year celebrations, community-led programs (including some bi-lingual) and customised corporate events.

PurposeThis ad hoc grant activity will be a partnership with Netball Australia (NA) encompassing three streams of work. The first stream provides a comprehensive package of support to help Netball Samoa and Fiji Netball prepare their respective women's national teams for the NWC in the UK in July 2019. Held every four years, the NWC brings together the world's top teams and represents netball's flagship global event. Samoa and Fiji have qualified as part of the 16 competing nations - a major achievement for the Pacific's elite netball teams. However, both teams face internal constraints to ensuring their NWC preparations are delivered to a high standard. Developed with Fiji Netball and Netball Samoa, Netball Australia's support will help address their unique capacity needs leading into the NWC through providing a program of high performance training, mentoring and coaching support - delivered by the Australian Diamonds - the world's number one ranked team
