ARC Centres of Excellence

Funded by: Australian Research Council

ARC Centres of Excellence (CoEs) are a prestigious and highly competitive funding scheme, established to support ground breaking, multi-disciplinary research in areas of national significance, with a focus on strengthening and developing Australia's international competitiveness.

Successful CoE research programs are highly collaborative in nature, and commence with committed multi-institutional, multi-sector partners domestically and internationally.

Each CoE is led by a Director who is a world-class researcher with demonstrated leadership and mentoring capacity. To be competitive, prospective Centre Directors should be high profile, with an international reputation in the field of research. They should have extensive research leadership experience, demonstrating a capacity to lead programs. The Centre Director is expected to work predominantly on the activities of the Centre.
