    Event description

    Join us in Canberra or online for insights on the Australian Research Council’s (ARC) premier Centres of Excellence program. There are major opportunities for aspiring researchers in the humanities, arts and social sciences to design transformational research programs and strategic partnerships with enduring impact in the leadup to the 2026 CoE round and beyond.

    This workshop will feature a mix of presentations, panel discussions, and plenary Q&A sessions with current Centre Directors and ARC personnel. It is designed to assist researchers aspiring to develop or contribute to successful Centre of Excellence proposals, or to support such bids from administrative or research management roles. Importantly, while the focus will be on the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) the content will likely be of relevance to researchers in all academic fields.

    The workshop is a joint initiative of the Australian Research Council (ARC), the Australian Academy of the Humanities, the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, and the Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH).
