Each year CBA funds a number of small pilot projects as part of our Ignition grant scheme.
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 more than 30 Ignition projects over 7 rounds.
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 presented a wide range of diverse and original science highlighting the success of the Ignition grant scheme.
A list of publications from our Ignition projects can be found on our Outcomes page.
