Research translation

We have a strong track record of turning world-first research into results.


You can benefit from our experience and leadership in the field of injury prevention.

ARC Linkage Grants

ARC Linkage grants enable MIRI to combine our scientific expertise with the practical know-how of commercial and government partners. We are currently working on ARC sponsored projects with:

  • Department of Justice (VIC)
  • Department of Transport (DOT)
  • Transport Accident Commission (TAC)
  • Transport Safety Victoria
  • University of Southampton (in the United Kingdom)
  • VicTrack
  • Victoria Police
  • V/Line
  • VicRoads
  • Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC)


The creation of strong partnerships and the willingness to be innovative and trial new initiatives are important links in the injury prevention chain. We work cooperatively with private sector organisations to define the scope of research projects and encourage the adoption of injury prevention measures.

Such close collaborations are important, as our research can only be effective if our recommendations are implemented, evaluated and enforced. Without a strong relationship between our researchers and our industry partners, the injury prevention successes we have enjoyed so far would not have been possible.

The variety of fields our industry partners work within reflects the broad reach of our research activities. We have worked with automotive giants, energy and fuel companies, insurance and auditing professionals, public transport bodies and recreational service providers.

Our partners have come to trust us, and know they can depend on our scientists to translate research into practical, commercial benefits.
