Tasmania wins $24m Antarctic research grant

The University of Tasmania has received a $24-million federal research grant to build a remote-controlled submersible to gather data hundreds of metres under Antarctic ice sheets.

The Antarctic Gateway Partnership grant will also allow UTAS and its research partners to develop polar sea ice charting services for ships and to employ 40 researchers and technicians.

Announcing the funding on 14 November, federal education minister Christopher Pyne said it will support research involving scientists from more than 10 countries and further strengthen Australia’s reputation for collaborative research in Antarctica.
