ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH)

This Australian Research Council (ARC) funded centre is headquartered at the University of Wollongong, lead by Professor Richard Roberts. The centre aims to unlock the environmental and human history of Australia, Papua New Guinea and eastern Indonesia, and help inform the management of Australia's natural and cultural resources into the future. Launched in June, 2017, this is a seven year funding collaboration between 20 institutions and museums around the world.

CABAH is the first of its kind in the world, and will encourage budding young scientists through a unique outreach program at schools and museums through Australia by focussing on nuturing the careers of Indigenous and female researchers.

ACAD recieves over $2M worth of funding for CIs Dr Laura Weyrich and Professor Alan Cooper leading key research areas.

Adelaide will play host to the Annual Symposium, 5-9th November, 2018 as well as 3 short courses in modelling, genetics and climate in the days leading up to the symposium.

Program will be posted in September.
