Please join us for this dynamic and interactive workshop with Professor Alison Ross, Australian Research Council (ARC) Executive Director, Humanities and Creative Arts and Professor Anika Gauja ARC Executive Director Social, Behavioural and Economic Sciences. This is the second in a series of workshops connecting members with the ARC.

  • Teams vs individuals? 
  • Changes to the workforce – is the ARC reflecting these changes?
  • Diversity of workforce and diversity of ARC schemes 
  • Diversity of career pathways: is it sufficiently recognised by ARC? 
  • “The bottom line is that the more you go through failure and come back through it, the more helpful it is”(Nobel prize winner Robert Lefkowitz) – Are ARC failures the necessary pathway to success and excellence?

These sessions will be an opportunity for DASSH and NOADD members (especially Associate Deans Research, Indigenous, Impact, Engagement, and Industry among other roles) to discuss with the ARC Executives the role of the ARC in the changing and challenging Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences research environment.   

This is your chance to give direct feedback, to engage in discussion and to gain insight into how you can benefit from existing and changing grant frameworks.

This session is preceded by an online workshop and followed by an in-person workshop at the DASSH Conference in September.

A third session (post DASSH conference) will be set up for later in the year to draw together suggestions and guidelines for the ARC and give clarification.
