To support the advancement of knowledge and contribute to national innovation, the ARC engages an ARC College of Experts to play a key role in identifying research excellence, moderating external assessments and recommending fundable proposals. It also assists the ARC in recruiting and assigning assessors and in implementing peer review reforms in established and emerging disciplines as well as interdisciplinary areas.
Its members are experts of international standing drawn from the Australian research community: from higher education, industry and public sector research organisations. ARC College of Experts nominations are approved by the ARC CEO for appointments of one to three years.
