Building your research profile

Dr Tony Shiels will be visiting us to discuss his role in helping us to build and develop our research profile. He will discuss the impact of ERA 2012 on our performance data and how we can benefit from using ERA to develop our career.

Tony is part of the Research Policy and Performance team and they provide the following support services to University clients:

  • Research Plan 2011-2013
  • Research strategies and policies
  • Research performance data
  • Higher Education Research Data Collection
  • Excellence in Research for Australia
  • Research publications and outputs
  • Research centre reviews


Tony will also discuss the Government's Higher Education Research Data Collection. It is compiled annually on the research income and research publications of all the Higher Education Providers in Australia. This information is then used by the Government to distribute block grant funding, such as the RTS and JRE, between Australian HEPs in subsequent years. The HERDC publications are now also being used as part of the Excellence in Research for Australia submission and also drives internal reporting around performance indicators, promotions applications and research activity.  This seminar will tie in nicely with previous events and create a whole picture approach.

 When: Thu 24 Oct 2013 10:30am – 11:30am Eastern Time - Brisbane         

Where: L05 Boardroom 1.35
