Enhanced modelling capacity for the Industrial Ecology Virtual Laboratory (ARC LIEF project administered by the University of New South Wales) (2016–2017)
This project will enable Australian research leaders working on the integrated sustainability assessment of
policies, products and projects to collaborate in the Industrial Ecology Virtual Laboratory (IELab). It will develop
and implement an enhanced modelling capability and a suite of online analytical tools to support sustainability
scientists and analysts from Australia and abroad conducting research projects of national and international
significance. By upgrading IELab hardware and analytical and modelling software, the project will implement a
maximum level of continuous updating, versatility and flexibility to ensure policy relevance and global leadership
of new research for many years.
