Seed funding granted

An application for seed funding under the University of Melbourne’s Indigenous Research Initiative scheme, and involving the CRC-REP’s Mike Dockery, has been successful. The project ‘Digital solutions for capturing connectedness and mobility data in remote Indigenous communities’ was allocated $50,000 and is due to be completed by February 2018.

In addition to academics based with the University of Melbourne, the interdisciplinary project team includes researchers from the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, Charles Darwin University and the Menzies School of Health Research. Mike will have a minor advisory role, providing insights on mobility patterns and household composition and on the design of instruments to capture dimensions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mobility and connectedness.
