Australian Competitive Grants Register

For: 

The ACGR lists schemes that provide competitive research grants to higher education providers (HEPs). The income HEPs receive from ACGR listed schemes can be reported in Category 1 of the Research Income Return – Return 1 of the Higher Education Research Data Collection. The income HEPs receive from schemes listed on the ACGR is a metric used to inform the allocation of the Australian Government's Research Block Grants (RBG).

Starting from the 2017 ACGR the process for applying to the ACGR has been separated between those who seek to extend an ACGR listed scheme and those seeking to list new schemes on the ACGR.
