Professor John Dewar to Chair IRU

IRU is pleased to announce Professor John Dewar, Vice-Chancellor La Trobe University, will chair the IRU network of 7 universities for 2014 and 2015.

“Over 2014 IRU will demonstrate the importance of IRU research, and work to ensure that government policy settings allow this essential work to continue,” Professor Dewar said.

“IRU members focus on issues of critical importance to the communities in which we are based. We aim to address these problems on a national and global scale. One of the key strengths of IRU members is that we take a strong multidisciplinary approach to our research and teaching and are highly focussed on translating the results of our research into action.”
