Assessing the wider benefits arising from university-based research discussion paper: IRU Submission

Innovative Research Universities (IRU) members are eager to further the discussion on research impact and to contribute to the development of a national approach to communicating the benefits of Australian research and the development of any impact assessment exercise.

The Assessing the wider benefits arising from university-based research discussion paper responds to the question of how we should recognise and assess the benefits of university research. While advancing the discussion, the paper does not make a convincing case for any of the specific approaches outlined within.
