More kludging required as Research Centre Rejected

Just read the bad news over on Lloyd’s blog that the bid for a Collaborative Research Centre in Assistive Technology for Australia has been rejected.

The letter from the CRC selection committee cited in part:

The Committee recognises that this application covers an important area that does not currently receive strong financial support. However overall the application did not meet the selection criteria …

This leaves Lloyd asking “Is Australia doomed to be an importer in AT?

Another kick in the guts for people with disability in Australia.

Shame Australian Govt., shame

Kludge on.
