ARC Discovery Program consultation
22 November 2010
The ARC is coming to Sydney to give a presentation about proposed changes to its Discovery Program and to answer questions from the audience. All interested parties are welcome to attend - no RSVP required.
The ARC are proposing significant changes to the Discovery Program which will impact on Sydney's researchers. We encourage researchers, particularly those considering long-term research careers including research fellowships, to engage with the consultation process.
Under the changes proposed:
a new, separately assessed, flexible award will be established to support ECRs
support for fellowships and ECR-only proposals currently available under the Discovery Projects scheme will be removed
a new award will be made available under the Discovery Projects scheme to support mid to late career research-only and teaching and research academics to undertake a specific project or program.
