CRC for Living with Autism Spectrum Disorders
The Federal Government's announcement on 16 February 2013, establishing a Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Living with Autism Spectrum Disorders, is set to revolutionise the way Autism research is undertaken in Australia and will transform the lives of more than one million Australians.
The Autism CRC, to be based at Long Pocket in Brisbane in association with the University of Queensland, will be the world’s first national, cooperative research effort directed towards Autism.
The implementation of a highly innovative “whole-of-life” research portfolio will deliver a continuum of support required for people with Autism to participate successfully in education, employment and all facets of the community.
The core participants in the Autism CRC will be:
- Autism Queensland Inc.
- University of Queensland
- Queensland University of Technology
- Griffith University
- Mater Medical Research Institute
- AEIOU Foundation
- Department of Education, Training and Employment Queensland
- LaTrobe University
- University of NSW
