Compounds Australia operates a partial cost recovery model and as such we are unable to fully fund new and replacement infrastructure. Accordingly, in collaboration with our stakeholders, we must pursue competitive infrastructure funding. Research metrics are central to supporting our case for funding as they help to highlight our contribution to the Australian research ecosystem. In order to compile and report these metrics, we are reliant on researchers, institutes and members acknowledging Compounds Australia’s role where possible, including in publications and presentations.

Acknowledgment need only be a single line in print or papers, or the use of the logo in presentations along with a quick email informing Compounds Australia that acknowledgment has been made.
