AIP strongly supports ARC Review recommendations

8 Feb 2024 2:30 PM | Anonymous

The AIP strongly supports the recommendations of the Review of the Australian Research Council Act, led by Prof Margaret Sheil.

As highlighted in our submission to the Review, the AIP strongly endorses the role of expert assessment by the research community in the evaluation of research grant applications. This is in line with international best practice.

We believe that Ministerial input should be focused on the research scheme guidelines and funding rules, rather than decision making about individual research projects. This puts the decision making in the hands of qualified experts, ensuring the best possible outcomes for our research funding investments.
