21.12.2021 News

We are delighted to announce our four new scholarship recipients of the HDR scheme (Higher Degree by Research) – Benedictor Kemanga, Amelia Lee Zhi Yi, Maryam Sadat Kahe and Babul Hossain.

Their research areas range from soil carbon sequestration, pit lake and groundwater systems to stakeholder mapping. They are working together with CRC TiME partner organisations on specific industry defined issues. CRC TiME and our partners are keenly anticipating their research outcomes, supporting economic activities at closed mine sites.
