What secrets are hidden in the many kilometres of core collected from the sub-sea floor? ANZIC provides grants of up to $25,000 to researchers from member institutions for the study of previously collected ocean and land core samples and data and the rapid delivery of research outputs. Opportunities extend to fields beyond traditional geosciences, including data science, mathematics, molecular and genetic analysis, and much more.
We regularly offer Legacy Analytical Funding (AILAF) Grants to researchers from our Australian & New Zealand Member institutions to support the study of previously collected ocean drilling samples or data.
Applications are now closed for the 2023 AILAF Scheme.
Congratulations to the 12 projects selected for 2023 funding.
Previously funded research projects:
University of Wollongong Researcher, Dr Sam Marx, investigates the transport of Australia's iconic desert dust with help from deposits found in deep ocean cores thousands of kilometres away, and an AILAF Grant.
