PHCC is pleased to be part of a proposed new national research initiative to support sustainable mine closure and Transformations in Mining Economies (TiME). The proposal for a Cooperative Research Centre CRC – TiME was lodged earlier this year and involves over 50 partners around Australia, including Alcoa, South 32, BHP, UWA, RDA Peel, Shire of Murray, and PHCC. If funded, CRC – TiMe aims to benefit both the mining sector and the communities and environments in which they operate. PHCC’s involvement in the initiative has been facilitated by the WA Biodiversity Science Institute (WABSI) who have played an important role in encouraging regional community’s participation.
The CRC-TiME proposal was recently short-listed as one of six CRC bids that may be funded under the Cooperative Research Centre scheme Australia-wide. Successful CRC initiatives will be announced in December.
