A sense of direction for the research infrastructure roadmap

Ziggy Switkowski (RMIT chancellor) and colleagues will draft directions for the government to consider (CMM June 1) but first they will take advice

The feds announce a “nationally circulated survey” which will “collect insights from the research community and its stakeholders.” Then there will be a “facilitated meetings and on-line brainstorms” for input from “the research community and its stakeholders.”

An exposure draft will follow “informed by the ideas and discoveries of the consultation process” which will be released for comment and submissions “will guide the development of a final draft” for the government to consider.

And very consultative it all sounds – especially for those members of the research community, not to forget stakeholders, who will be heard at the meetings and brainstorms.
