About Exploring Research Grants and Projects

Research Data Australia aggregates research grant information supplied by some  funders and research project information supplied by some of our research institutions.

Grant descriptions are the responsibility of the funder who contributed the information. Some provide open access to their funding grants on their own web sites. Their own web site may provide detail absent from the description in RDA. Further information about each funder's grant data, including the currency of the information, can be found by following the 'read more' link under their entry below.

Research Project descriptions are the responsibility of the institution who contributed the information. RDA can contain both a description of the project and a description of the grant that funded it, in which case both descriptions will appear together in search results if they share the same grant identifier.
