Research impact not a priority, says Kim Carr | Julie Hare | The Australian Higher Education | 10 July, 2013

UNIVERSITIES are at the centre of the innovation system but Higher Education Minister Kim Carr is a long way from being convinced measuring the impact of their research is a worthwhile endeavour. “I am not in the business of asking universities to write long essays or fill in more forms. We are in the business of assessing research quality against a rigorous set of verifiable standards,” Senator Carr said, referring to the proposal to use case studies to measure research impact.
