Hot-seats filled for inaugural ARC Engagement and Impact assessments

The Australian Research Council has announced panel chairs for the inaugural round of the engagement and impact assessment.

Richard Dunford (UNSW): social sciences

Gerard Goggin (UniSyd): creative arts and humanities

John Grundy (Monash U): science and tech

Terry Nolan (UniMelb): health and life sciences

Maggie Walter (UniTas): Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research

These are fraught appointments. While industry-focused researchers have embraced the E&I case study approach there is substantial scepticism among researchers who prefer (at least compared to the new approach) the academics-writing-for-academics journal measure of the continuing Excellence for Research in Australia programme. ERA panel chairs were announced last month (CMM, March 22).

Submissions open in May.
