Department of Education and Training
The Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) programme is intended to effect structural adjustment in the research and research training capacity of smaller, regional and less research intensive universities in the higher education system. The programme is designed to develop the research capacity of smaller, less research-intensive and regional higher education institutions. The CRN programme was announced in the 2009-10 Budget. Total funding for the programme was $81.1 million.
In 2014-15 ACIL Allen Consulting undertook a mid-term programme evaluation to assess the effectiveness, efficiency and strategic policy alignment of the CRN programme.← Return to Program evaluation projects
