This scoping study will explore how best to execute increased Indigenous ownership over participatory research and how such a program can deliver on meaningful and substantive engagement of Traditional Owners. This scoping study will bring together key Indigenous leaders and groups to plan, prioritise and evaluate potential research directions. Specifically, this scoping study will engage with Indigenous Australians to develop a cohesive set of prospective projects for investment under future Hub research plans, that deliver up to large-scale, broader picture goals for Indigenous people. We are seeking ethical Indigenous engagement, equitable participation and co-design and co-delivery of national environmental research priorities, while substantially increasing the outcomes for social, economic and cultural terms for Indigenous people.
