New grant aids water treatment research link with Victoria University

Researchers from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering will work with Victoria University academics on the latest water treatment research, as part of a new $6.1m Federal Government Collaborative Research Network grant.

The Collaborative Research Networks program promotes collaboration in areas of common interest between research institutions and less research‐intensive, smaller or regional institutions.

Assoc. Prof. Sandra Kentish and Prof. Peter Scales from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering will work on the project, which aims to improve research in the field of water treatment and materials processing for water treatment. The funding will allow the project team to employ a PhD student and a Postdoctoral researcher, working towards a Linkage Project proposal.

Further information on the funding program is available from the website of Senator Kim Carr, Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research.
