The Australian National University is revelling in some very good assessments of its all important research work:
The Australian National University has scored the top mark in the Commonwealth Government’s major research quality measure in 63 per cent of fields assessed, up from 52 per cent in 2010.
Over 89 per cent of disciplines assessed for ANU were rated in the top two categories, above and well above world standard, up from 78 per cent in 2010.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Margaret Harding said the 2012 Excellence in Research for Australia report released today highlighted the University’s research strengths and the outstanding work of its academic staff.
“More than four out of five ANU academics evaluated in the ERA report are working on research in specific disciplines where performance is rated above, or well above world standard,” said Professor Harding.
