Previous Projects Awarded

Submissions for our Innovation Program were so strong that we increased the funding pool from $50k to $150k, to be shared across four projects for two years.

Our Innovation program winners were;

1. Monash University – developing a contextualised, immersive and interactive Virtual Reality training program so that interpreters will be better prepared to deal with complex and unexpected situations in very challenging Family Violence settings.

2. RMIT – researching the benefits of simultaneous interpreting in courts and tribunals. Our second project with RMIT is researching the benefits of a courts mentoring program for interpreters working with new and emerging languages.

3. The University of Queensland – researching the quality of telephone interpreting interactions and developing best practice guidelines for interpreters using this service. These guidelines will be an Australian-first, improving the quality of telephone interpreting services right across Australia.
