|Funding Opportunity||Type||EOI Closes||More Information|
|National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020 to 2025 Round 2||Grant||15/03/23||This grant opportunity aims to support and fund work to actively prevent and combat all forms of modern slavery in Australia. In Australia, modern slavery refers to a range of serious exploitative practices, including trafficking in persons, slavery, slavery-like practices (such as forced marriage, forced labour, servitude, and debt bondage), and the worst forms of child labour. While each of these practices are distinct, they all involve the manipulation of complex relationships between an offender and a victim and undermine a victim’s personal freedom and ability to make choices for themselves.
The objective of this grant opportunity is to deliver community-based projects that advance the National Action Plan’s 5 Strategic Priorities and contribute to achieving its key outcomes.
Funding for this grant opportunity will be provided under 2 streams:
Stream 1 – Combating Modern Slavery
Stream 2 – Research.
Applicants can only submit one application for this grant opportunity and must specify the stream in which they are applying.
Please complete the EoI form EOI_Template_NAP_to_Combat_Modern_Slavery_Rnd2_March_2023 and return to ROCRelationships@curtin.edu.au by COB 15 March 2023.

Challenge 4: Remote and Autonomous Systems this challenge area seeks innovations that help represent increasing autonomy in the environment, such as Remote and Autonomous Systems (RAS) and layered intelligence.
Challenge 5: A credible Information Environment this challenge area seeks innovations to help represent a realistic and contested cyber and electromagnetic environment.
DASA will host a Q&A webinar on the 17 March to provide more information on the challenge areas and how to submit a proposal. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions in the Q&A.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) – Proposers Day -Faithful Integrated Reverse-Engineering and Exploitation (FIRE)
|Proposers Day||On this occasion, the Proposers Day will be in-person only and no virtual participation is allowed. Unfortunately Dr Stuart Miller is unable to attend the in-person meeting, however he can provide proposal-related information as it becomes available for anyone who may be interested in this program.
The objective of FIRE is to develop tools to find, exploit, and patch vulnerabilities in medium-complexity cyber-physical systems within a month from when an analysis team receives the physical system. FIRE is primarily interested in vulnerabilities that arise from the composition of hardware, software and physical sub-systems where each component may not be vulnerable in-and-of itself; vulnerabilities in individual sub-systems (e.g., software only) are of secondary interest. FIRE is a 42-month program with five (5) Technical Areas (TAs).
• TA1 Modeling will focus on developing tools that can model entire systems (to include hardware, software and physical) with enough fidelity to find, exploit and patch vulnerabilities and are fast enough to meet the overall one-month program goal.
• TA2 Simulators will develop simulators that have enough precision to model interactions between system components and are fast enough to meet the overall program goals.
• TA3 Preparation will develop tools that reduce the amount of time needed to prepare a system for analysis to include techniques to accurately identify components, connections, and/or board layouts.
• TA4 Integration will create the FIRE tool(s) that meet the overall one-month program metric by integrating TA1, TA2, and TA3 solutions. It is strongly encouraged that TAs 1-4 form a single team for an integrated proposal.
• TA5 Engineering Support Task will develop representative medium-complexity cyber-physical systems with full data rights for TA1, TA2, TA3, and TA4 performers to test and evaluate their solutions.
