AUSTRALIAN RESEARCH COUNCIL (ARC) FUTURE FELLOWSHIP
Professor Leanne Wiseman has been awarded a Future Fellowship in excess of $1,087,370 for the project: The role that Intellectual Property (IP) plays in the rights and capacities of Australians to repair their smart goods.
This project aims to investigate the role that Intellectual Property (IP) plays in the rights and capacities of Australians to repair their smart goods. This project will generate new knowledge with regards to how IP can contribute to emerging regulatory approaches to the 'Right to Repair', which has consequences for a more efficient and sustainable use of Australia's resources. Expected outcomes include advanced knowledge and understanding of IP and the role it can play in rebalancing manufacturer and consumer relationships in digital consumables and in Australia's future environmental sustainability. This will enhance Australia's economy and society through legal, economic, and environmental regulatory reform.
AUSTRALIAN RESEARCH COUNCIL (ARC) LINKAGE PROJECT
A group of researchers that includes our Program Leader Professor Charles Sampford have been awarded $540,750 for the project: Constructing Building Integrity: Raising standards through professionalism.
This project aims to investigate the role of professions in rebuilding trust in residential building construction in Australia. In the wake of expensive and life-threatening building defects, this project expects to generate new knowledge about the functioning of individual professionals, professionals employed in multi-profession organisations, and professionals’ interaction with their institutional environment.
