25 Nov New funding from the Australian Research Council
We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been awarded an Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant for the next three years!
This is going to be another global collaboration with many including Prof William Sutherland at the University of Cambridge and Assistant Prof Fangyuan Hua at Peking University. Please see below the project summary – we can’t wait to develop the translatE project further!
Tapping into non-English-language science in tackling global challenges
This project aims to transform the conventional practice of English-biased evidence use to multilingual evidence synthesis to enable us to better tackle global challenges. The project expects to lay the foundations and provide platforms for multilingual, unbiased evidence-based solutions to global issues including biodiversity loss, climate adaptation and animal-origin diseases. Expected outcomes include a database of non-English-language evidence on the three global issues of focus, machine learning tools, and machine translation platforms that make non-English-language evidence accessible. This should benefit national/international policies and practices by making a neglected source of evidence available for science-led decision-making.
