Our research improved understanding of the social and economic significance of water, rivers and wild resources to Indigenous people in the Daly and Fitzroy catchments in the Northern Territory and Western Australia, respectively.
We believe that Indigenous Australians have extraordinary contributions to make to Australia across cultural, economic and scientific domains. Furthermore, we are committed to overcoming the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Our Indigenous STEM Education Project is aimed at increasing participation and achievement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as they progress through primary, secondary and tertiary education and into employment.
