IRU congratulates Labor Shadow Ministers

The Innovative Research Universities congratulates the Shadow Ministers chosen by the Leader of the Opposition Mr Shorten to form the Labor Shadow Ministry. The IRU looks forward to continuing to work with Senator Carr as Shadow Minister for Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Industry.

“There are important challenges ahead for the Opposition” said Professor Barney Glover, Vice- Chancellor, Charles Darwin University and Chair, IRU. “The previous Labor Government initiated major changes in higher education introducing demand driven funding for undergraduate students and further expanding a research system that supports good research where it is found across the university system.”
