Discussion paper

Assessing the wider benefits arising from university-based research

20 Jun 2013
Description

In November 2012, the Government announced its intention to assess the broader economic, social and environmental benefits arising from all elements of government research investment, including those benefits arising from university-based research. In support of this work, the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education, in consultation with the Australian Research Council, has prepared a discussion paper on Assessing the wider benefits arising from university-based research.

The discussion paper is now available at www.innovation.gov.au/impact

The department invites responses to the issues raised in the paper.

A preferred template for responses is also available online.

Submissions are due by 16 August 2013.

Scope of this paper: Research  is  undertaken  across  many  sectors  including  industry,  universities,  research  institutes  and   publicly  funded  research  agencies.  This  paper  relates  specifically  to  research  undertaken  in   universities  because  of  the  volume  of  data  that  is  already  collected  from  these  institutions  and  the   opportunity  to  build  on  the  assessment  of  research  quality  through  the  Excellence  in  Research  for   Australia  (ERA)  initiative.  The  research  and  engagement  activities  undertaken  within  publicly  funded   research  agencies,  independent  research  institutes  and  within  business  outside  of  universities  are   out  of  scope  for  this  consultation.
