ARC funding schemes aim to support research and research training in the Australian Government’s four National Research Priority areas of: an environmentally sustainable Australia; promoting and maintaining good health; frontier technologies for building and transforming Australian industries; and safeguarding Australia.
The ARC complies with the National Principles of IP Management for Publicly Funded Research and is committed to fostering the highest ethical standards in research. ARC-funded research should comply with the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research. Research involving humans or animals must comply with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) codes and The National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007).
Establishment of Australian Research Integrity Committee (ARIC)
ARIC will investigate and advise on concerns that institutions have not followed Part B of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (2007) or institutional processes in responding to allegations of research misconduct.
For further information, including the November 2009 draft ARIC proposal, please see the Research Integrity section.
