Campus-based research update
In light of Stage 4 restrictions, the research and research return to campus pages on the Central University's COVID-19 website have been updated with the latest information on eligibility criteria for on-campus research to ensure compliance with relevant Stage 4 restrictions, as well as advice regarding the new worker permit processes.
All previously approved on-campus research is to be reassessed to ensure it complies with Stage 4 restrictions. This work is being undertaken at the Academic Division level.
For immediate action, all staff with current approval for on-campus research purposes are asked to review the urgency and criticality of their work. They are also asked to defer or pause components of their work or the work of their teams in order to restrict or otherwise reduce the need for attendance on campus. No new approvals for return to campus can be given at the Divisional level but are to be managed via the process that was in place for Phase 1 requests. Requests will be routed to the DVCR for approval.
Guidance on the website will continue to be updated in line with new advice from PRG or any further clarifications from the Victorian government.

Applications now open for TRAM Track
TRAM (Translating Research at Melbourne) Track applications are now open for their Semester 2 cohort. In response to popular demand, this second intake of TRAM Track will create more opportunities for all researchers to interact with and participate in their programs. TRAM Track is undertaken by dynamic research teams over eight weeks to build their understanding of how to achieve impact. To do this, Track will support you to engage with customers to understand what problems they care about, generate a business model, and get your head into a business mind frame.
Applications are open from Wednesday 26 August through to Wednesday 21 October.
Where do we store our digital research treasures?
The University holds digital collections of great historic, cultural, and scientific interest and value. Research Computing Services (RCS) provides the storage environment for hundreds of these digital collections, working with archivists, researchers, and other experts around the University and beyond, to provide the right storage solutions for these valuable digital research treasures.
