About the ARC

The ARC is a dynamic agency with a dedicated, committed and talented cohort of people engaging in responsibilities to deliver policy and programs that advance Australian research and innovation globally and benefit the community. Leading our agency is a mix of inspiring academics—this includes our Chief Executive Officer and three professorial-level Executive Directors with strong research backgrounds. They are supported by our Executive General Manager and Branch Manager, along with roughly 100 public servants.

On this page, you will find links to the profiles of senior management personnel and an overview of our corporate structure.
