CROMM Co-Director successful in ARC Future Fellowship scheme (July 2014)

Dr Michael Flood, Co-Director of CROMM, was successful in his application for an ARC Future Fellowship. The Future Fellowships Scheme supports research in areas of critical national importance by giving outstanding researchers incentives to conduct their research in Australia. The aim of Future Fellowships is to attract and retain the best and brightest mid-career researchers.

Dr Flood’s research project is titled “Engaging men and boys in violence prevention: effective directions for practice”. Using robust evaluations of key strategies and interventions, this project will produce a systematic framework for effective practice in engaging men and boys in preventing violence against women. The project will produce both significant scholarly insights regarding gender and violence prevention and practical directions for policy and programming.

UOW was awarded a total of $5.39M for seven Future Fellowships, to five internal and two international candidates.
