  • The topics arising from this process will be developed for consideration by VCCCAR and the State Government research investment panel before Christmas. Of the initial proposals, it is anticipated 3-4 will be endorsed for commencement in 2012.
  • It is anticipated successful projects will commence in the first quarter of 2012.

Advice regarding the outcome of the selection process will be available from early 2012.
