More Vic Gov money for Monash U

Its $17.5m for Victoria’s Health Innovation Centre, which will include a cardiovascular research accelerator

No, this is not old news, you might be thinking of the separate $21m from the state government’s HE State Investment Fund for capex on Monash U’s medicines manufacturing innovation centre, cancer therapies hub and digital manufacturing start-ups (CMM September 2).

The Andrews Government has been dishing out dosh to the state’s public universities since May – to the particular pleasure of vice chancellors, who are happier with Sprint Street than Capital Hill.  Its cost-effective coverage, with the state government praised for a package which would barely cover half a year of ARC/NMHRC grants.
