Grant success! The UPLOADS Project funded to 2020

Professor Paul Salmon, Dr Natassia Goode and Professor Caroline Finch are excited to announce that they have been awarded just under $500,000 in funding from the ARC to continue and extend the UPLOADS Project for five years.

This means that the UPLOADS Project is fully funded until 2020.

The new grant continues the collaboration between the University of the Sunshine Coast, Federation University, Australian Camps Association, OEG, The Outdoor Council of Australia, Sport and Recreation Victoria and YMCA Victoria.

The goals of the next phase of the project are to:

  • Develop, test and implement a process for translating incident reporting data into appropriate and effective injury countermeasures.
  • Evaluate the impact of implementing the UPLOADS incident reporting system within organisations.

Thank you to all the people and organisations from the outdoor sector that have been involved in each stage of the UPLOADS Project so far. Your contributions, input and insights were critical to the success of the project, and the successful application for continued funding.

The award of this new grant indicates that the UPLOADS Project is not only world-leading and highly innovative, but that the ARC recognises that it has the potential to impact industries beyond the outdoor sector.
