In this submission, the Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH) sets out the key areas of concern for Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) disciplines in the higher education sector. We appreciate the opportunity to comment on the current state of research funding in the sector. Noting that this inquiry will be focused on federally funded research agencies, their funding mechanisms and university collaborative research, we are offering comments on behalf of the HASS disciplines across a broad range of institutions with different capabilities to manage research funding and externally funded grants. We acknowledge that the House Standing CommiIee on Education, Employment and Training will inquire into and report on the efficiency, effectiveness and coherency of Australian Government funding for research.
