The ARC has opened its public consultation as part of its review of ERA. The aim of this review is to:
simplify and streamline the programs
take advantage of recent developments in technology and big data
ensure the programs continue to reflect world’s best practice and
respond to the ongoing needs of the university sector, government and the public for a robust evaluation of Australian university research quality, impact and engagement.
DDCA has been contacted by the ARC and invited to make a submission and will be inviting DDCA members to contribute their views to a consolidated response to government. DDCA President Professor Clive Barstow will shortly be emailing those who have confirmed their 2020-21 membership to invite their input. Any school or faculty who is not yet a DDCA member, but who wishes to contribute their perspectives to this submission should contact the DDCA Administrator as soon as possible to arrange membership: firstname.lastname@example.org.
