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.
