Australia’s Filling the Research Gap Programme: Opportunities for International Collaboration

The Australian Government has announced the second round of competitive grants funding for the $201 million Filling the Research Gap Program.

Filling the Research Gap is providing eligible Australian organisations with funding to identify and develop new low–cost abatement options for the land sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester carbon.

International engagement is an important priority under this round of Filling the Research Gap through the promotion of collaborative efforts between Australian researchers and member countries of the Global Research Alliance on agricultural greenhouse gases.

Australia has already made outstanding contributions to international climate change research through the Climate Change Research Program and projects funded under the first round of Filling the Research Gap are building on these efforts.
