UA supports funding certainty and stability with a view to long-term funding for NRI. The NRI underpins Australia’s basic research capability: the capability that creates new knowledge.
Getting the membership of the Expert Advisory Group right is critical in ensuring that the appropriate balance between basic and applied research is achieved.
UA member universities play a very significant role hosting, supporting and using national research infrastructure. Therefore, UA looks forward to working with Government, particularly on an appropriate, useful process for the appointment of Expert Advisory Group members.
