Each year CBA funds a number of small pilot projects, called Ignition projects.
These aim to 'kick-start' new ANU-CSIRO collaborative research, with the intention that results will subsequently form the basis of more substantial research proposals and collaborations.
Since 2012, the CBA has funded 30 ignition projects.
In June 2016 past and present grant recipients were invited to share their progress and results in an Ignition Project Symposium. Presenting short ‘lightning talks’, scientists and students from ANU and CSIRO filled the afternoon with diverse and original science, highlighting the success of the Ignition grant scheme.
