Strategies to improve research performance

Becoming a leader in research performance is challenging and competitive. It takes a strong research workforce, sector collaboration and partnerships with industry to develop world-class research. Developing
a strategy for your institution can be difficult yet rewarding if you utilise your existing and emerging strengths, technology and international collaboration.

A year after the release of the first Excellence of Research for Australia (ERA) report, universities are looking for the best strategy to improve their research and innovation capacities. There have been numerous paths identified to boost research quality in Australia, including short and long- term strategies for individual institutions, workforce planning strategies and sector collaboration. These strategies aim to improve the capacity of individual institutions, the reputation of Australia’s research environment on the international stage and to maximise the community and industry benefit from innovation.
