The 2018 ACDS National Research Forum was held on September 24-25 in Melbourne. 27 Universities were represented including all but one Go8 and all but one ATN. Ten deans attended, several bringing their ADR’s and AD Graduate Students with them.
Presentations by Leanne Harvey on the ARC Engagement and Impact exercise, Jens Goennerman on Working with Industry, and a panel led by Margie Atkinson on CSIRO University relations in the age of engagement and impact, made a strong impression, as did Holger Meinke’s talk on leadership of a research institute.
