September 10, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


This is a tremendous day for the University of Adelaide The Excellence in Research for Australia results are out – that’s the ERA… … and it’s the Federal Government’s assessment of the quality of our research. Results come in rather like a school report and we get assessed on a basis of grades from 1 to 5 If you get a 4, that’s a really outstanding result … … and if you get a 5, it’s really testimony to world-leading research. So, the University, across its 67 fields, had more than 80% of them ranking at 4 or 5 More than half of those results came in at the level of 5… …which is an absolutely phenomenal result. This is really testimony to the quality of our researchers; they’re really quite remarkable. And it also really underlines the world-class status of this University. It’s a great result that I’m tremendously proud of… …I know the University community will be proud of it… … and it’s a fantastic result for our State.
