The Research Analytics and Policy team provides advice and data to a range of internal and external stakeholders of the University

We prepare submissions for the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), the Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) and other government initiatives. We collect and manage the University’s research outputs including publications.

Our team also manages the research centres and institutes reporting and reviews, and assists with export control permit applications as part of the strengthened export controls program by the Australian Department of Defence.
