CCD Cross Program Support Scheme

This scheme provides funding to support collaborative, cross program research projects within the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD). Applications should bring together researchers and students from across the five CCD research programs (Belief Formation, Language, Memory, Person Perception and Reading).
