In 2011, DASSH established a Networks of Associate Deans Research (ADR), to support excellence in research leadership. The Network held its inaugural meeting at the 2011 DASSH Conference in Townsville. Professor Sue McGinty (James Cook University) was Network Convenor and helped build the network during 2011 and 2012.

Future Meetings

The Network meets twice annually, with the most recent meeting taking place in September 2019.

Future meetings have been postponed pending the easing of domestic and international travel restrictions related to the spread of COVID-19.
