Backing excellence in Australian humanities and social science research

23 August 2016

The Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH) rejected claims in the media yesterday questioning the merits of funding of research projects and challenging the integrity of the Australian Research Council (ARC).

“Academics in Australian universities conduct research that is recognised internationally as world-leading. The key funding body for much of that research is the ARC. The ARC uses expert reviewers as part of a robust process for allocating competitive research funding based on merit,” said Professor Susan Dodds, President of DASSH.
