The ARC is a statutory authority within the Australian Government’s Education, Science and Training portfolio. Its mission is to advance Australia's research excellence to be globally competitive and deliver benefits to the community.
In seeking to achieve its mission, the ARC provides advice to the Government on research matters and manages the National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP), a significant component of Australia's investment in research and development.
Through the NCGP, the ARC supports the highest-quality fundamental and applied research and research training through national competition across all disciplines, with the exception of clinical medicine and dentistry.
In addition, the ARC brokers partnerships between researchers and industry, government, community organisations and the international community.
The NCGP comprises two main elements, Discovery and Linkage, under which the ARC funds a range of complementary schemes to support researchers at different stages of their careers, build Australia's research capability, expand and enhance research networks and collaborations, and develop centres of research excellence.
The outcomes of ARC-funded research deliver cultural, economic, social and environmental benefits to the Australian community.
