Reviewing the Antarctic application process
Thank you to the many researchers who took time to respond to the request for comments on the review of the 2012-13 Australian Antarctic Science application round. Many constructive comments were received with some broad and sometimes divergent views of elements of the process.
All comments and suggestions were considered carefully and a revised process for the 2014-15 application round has been agreed. Decisions were based on a need for the AAD to support the maximum amount of the best quality science that delivers value for Government and the efficient delivery of the priorities and objectives of the Australian Antarctic Science Strategic Plan 2011-12 to 2020-21 through a fair, open, transparent and efficient process.
A letter from the Chief Scientist, Dr Nick Gales, detailing the review outcomes is available.
The next step is to revise the Stream Implementation Plans. Drafts are available for comment, which should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business Monday 27 May.
