The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE)1 is pleased to contribute to the ARC review of the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) and Engagement and Impact (EI) assessment frameworks.
This review presents an important opportunity to not only look at advances and developments in the measurement of Australia’s research engagement and impact, but to also create a research evaluation system that engages with end-users and that has a positive impact on Australia’s society.

The more recent EI is an important compliment to the ERA, in capturing the impact of research and engagement with industry.
