Consultation on Research Opportunity and Performance Evidence

Closed on (Friday, 28 April)

The ARC is committed to ensuring all eligible researchers have fair access to competitive funding through the NCGP.

As input to this commitment, the ARC is undertaking a review of the Research Opportunity and Performance Evidence (ROPE) selection criterion, which was first used under the Discovery Projects scheme in 2011.

The ARC is seeking the views of all stakeholders, including individual researchers and assessors, about whether ROPE is achieving what it was put in place to achieve. The ARC invites critical feedback about the operation of ROPE including what is working well and where improvements could be made.
