TIAC has added its voice in support of agencies and applicants in approaching the Commonwealth Government in relation to funding for innovation in WA. Members acknowledged that WA does not perform well in accessing Commonwealth competitive funding programs and in particular the poor performance of WA researchers in accessing important Commonwealth funding such as Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs), Australian Research Council (ARC) and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) grants.
