The ARC’s purpose is to grow knowledge and innovation for the benefit of the Australian community through funding the highest quality research, assessing the quality, engagement and impact of research and providing advice on research matters. In fulfilling this purpose, the ARC plays a significant role in supporting international collaboration, by maintaining a strong presence within the international research community and providing funding opportunities that bring together Australian and international researchers and organisations.

The ARC's overarching aim in supporting international research collaboration is to maximise Australia's contribution to and benefits from international research collaborations, partnerships, developments and policy.
