UniSA research wins support for children’s health and welfare

Work to improve children’s health, education and welfare has received a worthy boost after the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation (CRF) awarded almost $400,000 in grants to University of South Australia researchers.

The Channel 7 CRF grants support South Australia’s world-class researchers to generate new knowledge and build research capability with the aim of improving the quality of life for children. The Foundation is committed to building knowledge and capability in the critical areas of child protection, mental health, reducing obesity and understanding the impacts that social determinants have on a child’s life.

In the 2020 grants, UniSA has been awarded five Channel 7 CRF grants, totalling $377,849:

UniSA’s Deputy Vice Chancellor: Research and Innovation, Professor Simon Beecham says he is delighted that the grants will support such worthy research projects.

“This research will help improve the health, education and welfare of Australian children – our country’s future – so it’s value cannot be overstated,” Prof Beecham says.

“It’s fantastic to see UniSA’s innovative research recognised and supported so that we can continue to create positive outcomes for Australian children now, and in the future.”
