To provide comprehensive data on Australia's research and development (R&D) effort for the Higher education sector. Includes the socioeconomic objective of economic development (energy resources and energy supply categories).
Presents estimates of expenditure and human resources devoted to R&D carried out by organisations in the Higher education sector. Universities are asked to include R&D carried out by them as participants in unincorporated Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs), but to exclude any R&D for incorporated CRCs as they are included in the Business sector. Other institutions (e.g. Technical and Further Education colleges) are excluded because it is considered that their contribution to total R&D would be minimal.
