This study combined analysis of the University’s database of researchers active in the Environment, Resources and Sustainability (ERS) Theme area with a survey of 112 UTAS staff active in ERS research to understand the capacities of the ERS Theme and identify the most effective activities the Theme could undertake to encourage greater success in large research grant applications.

The analysis identified factors that currently constrain collaboration with other researchers and engagement with stakeholders, essential features of interdisciplinary research in the ERS Theme. Based on this analysis, the study identified a series of activities designed to build skills and capacity in collaboration, engagement and the development of inter- and transdisciplinary research teams with a particular focus on early career researchers.
