Research excellence evaluators announced

The Australian Research Council has appointed chairs of the eight research evaluation committees, “who will perform a key role in the 2018 round of Excellence for Research in Australia.”

But not as key as the chairs for ERA 15. This year ERA research publication measures share the stage with the new impact narratives and while there was never a bunch of money attached to ERA this year unis are in it for the glory alone, (CMM November 1 2017).

The chairs are:

Rose Amal, UNSW: engineering and environmental sciences

Hugh Barrett, UWA: medical and health sciences

Brenda Cherednichenko, Deakin U: education and human society

David Green, Monash U: maths and ICT

Eleanor Mackie: UniMelb: biological and biotechnical sciences

Flavio Menezes, UoQ: econmics and commerce

John O’Connor, UniNewcaste:, physical, chemical and earth scieces

Graeme Turner, UoQ: humanities and creative arts
