Associate Professor Michael-Shawn Fletcher is a Wiradjuri man based at The University of Melbourne whose research, supported through the Discovery Indigenous scheme, tracks the long-term interactions between humans, climate, disturbance and vegetation. In doing so, he is recovering a more nuanced story than is typically told, of indigenous interaction and management of the Australian landscape for the past 40,000 years or more.

We were saddened to hear news of the passing of Professor Marian Simms during May 2021.

In order to ensure these expectations are met, the ARC first released the ARC Research Integrity Policy in 2015. The Policy outlines the requirements for institutions, and individuals engaged in ARC business, to report to the ARC research integrity matters, and the action the ARC may take in response to reported breaches of the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research 2018 (the Code). The ARC Research Integrity Policy is reviewed every two years and in June 2021 the ARC released a revised version that will come into effect from 1 July 2021.

A new space telescope, the most expensive ever constructed, is scheduled to be blasted into space on top of a rocket this October, with its sights to be set on the earliest era of deep time, when the universe’s first stars and galaxies were forming in the aftermath of the Big Bang.

Emeritus Professor Cheryl Praeger AC FAA has explored new territory and leapt career barriers, not just in the pure mathematical realms in which she is internationally recognised, but as a trailblazer for changing how maths is taught in schools and universities in Australia.

In September 2020 the ARC introduced new questions into researchers’ Research Management System (RMS) profiles to support transparency of personal interests and to provide a mechanism to declare relationships and support for research to both the Administering Organisation and the ARC. The information also supports Administering Organisations in implementing the Guidelines to Counter Foreign Interference in the Australian Higher Education Sector.  ARC will be making some minor changes to the wording and providing additional instructions to help researchers complete their RMS profiles.
