Message from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research): Our research shines

6 December 2012

The Excellence in Research for Australia 2012 results were released today. Our results clearly demonstrate the breadth and depth of research excellence at the University of Sydney, with all areas being rated at or above world standard and the vast majority (75 percent) above or well above world standard.

These results reflect the excellent research produced by our researchers. They also reflect the care and commitment shown by many to ensure the highest quality ERA submission. This includes the associate deans of research, faculty research officers, expert discipline leaders, the central Research Portfolio team - especially those in the Research Analytics and Data Strategy team led by Merril Bouckley with Adam Butler (team leader for the ERA submission process) - and finally our ERA Coordinator Assaad Masri.

A summary of the University's ERA performance can be found on the Research Support site.

Congratulations all. I am thrilled to be able to give you this good news just before the holidays.

Yours sincerely

Jill Trewhella
