Regional universities push need for local research
REGIONAL universities hope to highlight the importance of locally relevant research to an Abbott government review of research training.
Education Minister Christopher Pyne announced the review, by the Australian Council of Learned Academics, would measure the training needs for
university-based researchers. Regional Universities Network chairman Professor Peter Lee said it gave the sector a chance to highlight the relevance of research at regional tertiary institutions to local businesses.
It follows a recent RUN forum at Parliament House that Mr Pyne and several government MPs attended.
