Commentary by Stephen Downes

The Australian government has posted its response to three recent studies: Evaluation of Knowledge and Innovation Reforms Consultation Report; Review of Closer Collaboration Between Universities and Major Publicly Funded Research Agencies; and the Final Report for the National Research Infrastructure Taskforce. To a large degree accepting these reports, thegovernment will establish Research Quality and Accessibility Frameworks for Publicly Funded Research, though it remains uncommitted to typing this framework to funding (but what are the odds?). It also mentioned plans for a National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy. Most of the comments, howveer, deal with promoting flexible funding arrangements and performance based assessment. Many of the rest of the comments were of the "government will take into account..." variety, which means they won't. Via FOS News.
