Research Security

Australia’s world-class and internationally engaged university research system makes an important contribution to developing technologies that underpin our future, contributing to Australia’s continued prosperity, economic growth. As a result, research undertaken at Australian universities can sometimes be an attractive target for foreign interference.

As the main funding agency for non-clinical research in Australia, the Australian Research Council (ARC) works proactively with universities to help identify and manage potential foreign interference risks, in line with broader government frameworks.

The Countering Foreign Interference page provides guidance and useful links outlining ARC’s processes to help keep research secure.
