Support and Funding

The Woomera Manual does not seek endorsement by individual States. It is funded through academic institutions, principally the four founding institutions:

These universities have been awarded certain research grants associated with this project and are applying for others. The grants do not presuppose particular outcomes in respect of the content of the Woomera Manual and no endorsement of the content of The Manual by the relevant government funding agencies can be implied from the awarding of a grant.
