Date opened
Date closed

In November 2022, the independent Review Panel for the Australian Research Council Act 2001 (ARC Review) called for public submissions from interested individuals and organisations to share their views and advice on:

  • whether the role and purpose of the ARC as set out in the legislation remains relevant
  • the ARC governance model and management functions and structures to ensure they are contemporary, fit for purpose, and meet the needs of stakeholders
  • opportunities to improve the legislation to better facilitate globally competitive research and partnerships, reduce unnecessary administrative and legislative burden and increase agility
  • how the legislation could be revised to reflect the breadth of functions of the ARC and its evolution.

The consultation phase of the Review concluded in December 2022.
