A sequel to our Comparative Review of the ARC report, this report is more contentious than pointing out the discrepancies between our research agency, the governance, and their processes to those found overseas. We highlight the difference in attitude towards research, the differing views of the purpose of research and how some of the common recommendations may or may not be feasible but offer alternatives we have found based on precedence.

Finally, it will suggest that whatever form this transformation takes, a quick insert of a cultural value of a foreign country directly into our legislation is not a long-term solution. We should aim to express these ideals in a way that will resonate with the Australian Public, thereby making it uniquely Australian.
