The method further comprises determining a milestone for the at least one sub-project, determining a rating for the at least one sub- project based on a valuation score obtained from at least the sub-project participants and the project creator and determining whether the milestone was achieved based on at least the rating.
WO/2015/024072 PORTABLE CONVEYOR BELT LIFTER||WO||26.02.2015|
||PCT/AU2014/050190||EZIFIX MINING SOLUTIONS PTY LTD||ARIF, Maxwell, Olgun|
ABSTRACT A portable conveyor belt lifter including first (A) and second (B) uprights at opposed lateral sides of a longitudinally extending conveyor belt (17). A cross brace (11) extends over the conveyor belt and braces together the first and second uprights A,B. The cross brace can be adjusted to suit the width of the conveyor system. An elongate lifting member (20) attached to respective lifting members (6a,6b) extends upward, powered by an external power source, to effect upward movement of the elongate lifting member and thus the conveyor belt. The lifter can be powered by hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical supply or manual jack actuation. The lifter can be provided as a kit of parts. The elongate lifting member (20) can include chain, rope, a rigid or semi-rigid member, or combinations of two or more thereof. Components of the portable conveyor belt lifter may be formed or fabricated from carbon composite, carbon fibre, aluminium or chrome molybdenum steel (chrome moly) for strength and relative lightness.
WO/2015/024058 A LASER SYSTEM FOR IMAGING AND MATERIALS ANALYSIS||WO||26.02.2015|
||PCT/AU2014/000828||THE UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND||RAKIC, Aleksandar|
A THz quantum cascade laser is used to investigate a target by directing a first beam of laser radiation from the laser at the target to thereby produce a second beam of laser radiation by interaction of the first beam with the target. Self-mixing of the first and second beams occurs within the laser and causes variations in a signal such as the operating voltage of the laser. An operating parameter of the laser that affects the interaction of the first beam with, the target is varied. The operating voltage is monitored and processed to determine phase and amplitude changes associated with material properties of the target. Consequently in one embodiment the invention provides for processing the variations in the signal to produce various images of the target.
WO/2015/024060 IMMUNORECEPTOR MODULATION FOR TREATING CANCER AND VIRAL INFECTIONS||WO||26.02.2015|
||PCT/AU2014/000830||THE COUNCIL OF THE QUEENSLAND INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL RESEARCH||SMYTBE, Mark|
A method of reducing or relieving immune inhibition in a mammal includes the step of at least partly inhibiting or reducing CD96 activity in one or more cells of the mammal to thereby relieve immune inhibition and/or enhance or restore immune surveillance in the mammal. Typically, inhibiting or reducing CD96 activity does not include, or depend upon, killing of CD96-expressing cells in the mammal. The method relieves immune inhibition and/or enhances or restores immune surveillance in the mammal to thereby treat or prevent cancer or cancer metastasis and/or a viral infection in the mammal. Also provided is a method of screening, designing, engineering or otherwise producing a CD96-inhibitory agent that relieves immune inhibition and/or enhances or restores immune surveillance in a mammal. Typically, the CD96-inhibitory agent is an antibody or antibody fragment.

WO/2015/024062 ENHANCED AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM||WO||26.02.2015|
||PCT/AU2014/000832||UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA||GRANT, Alexander, James|
The invention relates to method and apparatus for improving the performance of communication systems using Run Length Limited (RLL) messages such as the existing Automatic Identification System (AlS). A binary data sequence is Forward Error Correction (FEC) coded and then the sequence is compensated, for example by bit-erasure, so that either bit-stuffing is not required, or a bit stuffer will not be activated to ensure that the coded sequence meets the RLL requirement. Various embodiments are described to handle different architectures or input points for the FEC encoder and bit erasure module. The bit erasure module may also add dummy bits to ensure a RLL compliant CRC or to selectively add bits to a reserve buffer to compensate for later bit stuffing in a header. Additional RLL training sequences may also be added to assist in, receiver acquisition.
