Luci Pangrazio and Neil Selwyn have just been awarded a research grant from the Uruguayan National Agency for Research and Innovation (ANII - Agencia Nacional de Investigation e Innovacion).

Research with Australian students will be conducted in parallel with comparative studies in Uruguay led by the project partners from Universidad ORT.
