Inquiry into Funding Australia's Research

Due Date
30 Jun 2018

The House Standing Committee on Employment, Education and Training has commenced a new inquiry into Funding Australia’s Research. The committee will inquire into and report on the efficiency, effectiveness and coherency of Australian government funding for research. This inquiry will be focused on federally funded research agencies, their funding mechanisms and university collaborative research.

The inquiry will not consider the National Health and Medical Research Council, nor non-federal research funding.

The committee welcomes your views on any or all of the terms of reference, depending on your areas of interest and expertise.
