Call for ARC to halt the churning | JULIE HARE | The Australian Higher Education | 29 January, 2014
OVER the Christmas break, the Centre for Positive Psychology and Education at the University of Western Sydney upped sticks and moved across town to Australian Catholic University\’s Strathfield campus. It totalled about 40 people: researchers, their support staff and PhD students. Yesterday, in a case of déjà vu, the University of South Australia confirmed it had acquired senior researchers and support staff from the University of Technology Sydney’s Centre for Choice. UniSA had even bought real estate in North Sydney to accommodate it’s new Institute for Choice. Two years ago, Central Queensland University, chequebook in hand, acquired UniSA\’s entire team of sleep researchers – and purchased real estate so they could stay in Adelaide.
