Linkage Grant

With generous cash and in-kind support from the following research partners, Co-operatives WA has teamed up with the UWA Business School on a 3 year Australian Research Council Linkage Grant project.

Thank you to Co-ops WA’s research partners, who are:

  • Capricorn Society
  • Co-operative Bulk Handling Group
  • Mount Barker Co-op
  • RAC of WA
  • Quairading Farmers Co-op
  • United Crate Co-op
  • Wesfarmers Ltd
  • York and District Co-op


The project title is:

Looking Back – Looking Forward: The economic and social contribution of the Western Australian Co-operative and Mutual Enterprise (CME) sector to the state’s development

The UWA team will examine the economic and social contribution the CME sector has made in WA, through the lens of selected organisations that represent a cross-section of the State’s industries.

The project will provide a significant foundation of data upon which to develop industry and policy advice for industry representative bodies such as Co-operatives WA.

  • We study history not to be clever in another time, but to be wise always – Marcus Tullius Cicero – Roman scholar and philosopher.
  • How can we understand our present or glimpse our future if we cannot understand our past? – Stephen Fry.
