Grants & Funding

Steve's track record in attracting external research funding has been evidenced by:

  1. The success of the CRC Cyber Security grant of $140 million, whichwas due in part to my ability to work with scholars in diverse fields such as IT, computer science, security and police studies. This successful bid involved 6 universities and 17 industry participants including Optus, CISCO, and Australian Federal Police.
  2. He is currently engaged in industry research on responsible drinking, with funding of $246,875 from Memento Hospitality in Sydney.
  3. In 2012, an Industry research grant with the mobile phone carrier, amaysim, was shortlisted for the Marketing Effectiveness Awards by the AMI, under the category of consumer insight.
  4. Co-authorship of an industry report with STEP (an international industry body of estate planners) on Estate Planning in Australia Or it will never happen to me, with Professor Adam Steen and academics from the University of Adelaide in 2017. Extensive media coverage of this report in Australia reached approximately 134,000 people and generated 58.4 million views online.

Benefit Case for a Hydrogen Industry in Tasmania: Origin Energy (2022)$64,382
Description
We will prepare a report which outlines the benefits associated with the Bell Bay Green Ammonia plant for the State, commencing with the project award, and map out the benefits of a hydrogen economy to 2030.We will outline all necessary assumptions and outline where we see gaps in the grey and published literature as pertains to this project.While this is primarily a desktop review, we seek agreement to interview staff in University of Tasmania (others?) on potential impacts which require specialist knowledge. We will prepare a set of questions which we will pass by Origin and then the Social Science Ethics Committee. This process will ensure that UTAS project staff do not inadvertently disclose information which is commercial in confidence.

Agricultural Innovation Hubs Program (2022 - 2023)$2,499,999
Description
The University of Tasmania hosts one of eight Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs established across Australia under the Commonwealths Future Drought Fund. Hubs are intended to be enduring institutions. The current proposal is about the Commonwealths call to expand the Hubs remit to service four priority areas under the National Agricultural Innovation Agenda. If funded, the Hub in Tasmania will need to operate under two agreements: the current agreement for the Drought Hub and a new agreement that is about developing the Hubs pathway to expansion, while continuing to deliver to the Drought Hub under the current agreement. This proposal presents the Hubs Statement of Claims on its ability and commitment to deliver practical activities and a business case that supports the National Agricultural Innovation Agenda

Drought Resilience Tasmania - Actionable Knowledge and Solutions for Sustainable Prosperity (2021 - 2024)$9,530,969
Description
Water is a major asset for Tasmania linked to livelihoods, energy production, irrigated and rainfed agriculture, environmental management and conservation. Competing demands forwater intensify during droughts and as hot and dry years increase in number. Wise and fair water management requires a multi-stakeholder partnership to innovate for droughtresilience, optimal water management and self-reliance. Our Hub will enable drought preparedness in Tasmania through collective and co-designed actions that sustain Tasmaniashigh-value, clean, green international brand. We will engage with local knowledge and land stewardship through a deliberate and negotiated process and uphold the rights ofTasmanian Aboriginal people to benefit from innovations they enable. The Hub, for the first time, brings together the major players - farmers, land and water managers, researchers,and indigenous knowledge owners - who, together can reduce the risks associated with drought in Tasmania.

Risks & Opportunities for the Blue Economy (2020 - 2022)$613,462
Description
Cataloguing hazards and characterising risks associated with the Blue Economy is the most challenging step of any risk identification process. This project will deliver an integrative characterisation of risk across all parts of the Blue Economy CRC engineering and technology, production, energy, sustainability and policy. The resulting integrated inventory will identify the multidimensional envelopes of risk relevant to the Blue Economy activities in the short to medium term. Opportunities (research gaps, industry needs, etc.) identified during the analysis will also be catalogued. Consequently, this project is foundational to many CRC activities, bringing immediate benefit to any industry partners undertaking trials or deployment within the next decade.
