This Centre of Excellence links researchers from science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) disciplines – including Earth and climate sciences, ecology and genetics – with scholars from humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) disciplines such as archaeology and Indigenous and museum studies. CABAH will bring the extraordinary environmental and human history of Australia to the public through a comprehensive program of education, outreach and science communication events for schools, museums, science festivals and a range of digital media. 

CABAH is funded by a $33.75 million grant from the ARC, $1 million from the NSW Government, and $11 million from participating universities, museums, and other organisations. These will support around 40 new research positions and more than 50 new research students over the 7-year life of the Centre.
