Excellence in Research for Australia - ERA 2012 outcomes

The Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) results are imminent but there has been no official word on when the results will be announced. The "Towards Research Excellence Summit" is scheduled for Thursday and Friday this week in Melbourne with the CEO of the Australian Research Council (ARC), Prof. Aidan Byrne, speaking on Thursday morning; perhaps the results will be announced then. A Thursday announcement has also been mentioned in the AFR: article.

We are all waiting in anticipation to first, find out how well each Australian university performed, and, second to hear whether there is any word on the next round of ERA and whether research impact will form any part of the next assessment.
