Featuring two speakers from the Australian Research Council:

Sarah Howard, Branch Manager (Research Excellence)

As the Branch Manager, Ms Sarah Howard leads the ongoing implementation of two national research assessment programs administered by the Australian Research Council – the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) program, and the Engagement and Impact (EI) assessment. Ms Howard also oversees the management of the longitudinal datasets for these programs and the provision of policy advice on research evaluation and the state of the Australian university research landscape more broadly. In addition, Ms Howard is responsible for the ARC’s internal program evaluation function, which provides assurance and supports continuous improvement of ARC policies and its administration of the National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP).

Ms Howard’s career in the Australian Public Service has included a number of roles at the ARC, in the areas of research evaluation, research policy and research funding, through the National Competitive Grants Scheme, as well as previous roles in other Government Departments and in the university research sector.

Mr Stuart Henry, Branch Manager (Programs) 

Commencing in October 2021 as the Branch Manager (Programs), Mr Stuart Henry is responsible for the administration of the National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP) for the ARC.
Through his role, Mr Henry works closely with the ARC’s Executive Group, to oversee the operations of both the Linkage and Discovery Programs of the NCGP. Engagement with the academic sector and other government agencies is also important in effectively delivering the NCGP. The ARC's Linkage funding schemes aim to encourage and extend cooperative approaches to research and improve the use of research outcomes by promoting national and international research partnerships between researchers and business, industry, community organisations and other publicly funded research agencies. The ARC’s Discovery funding schemes recognise the importance of fundamental research to the national innovation system. A strong capability in fundamental research results in the development of new ideas, the creation of jobs, economic growth and an enhanced quality of life in Australia.
Mr Henry brings to the role an extensive public service experience across a range of agencies, including whole-of-government efficiency work, policy development, service delivery reform and stakeholder engagement. Joining the ARC in 2021, Mr Henry has previously fulfilled leadership roles in the Department of Defence and the Department of Finance.
