This Oz think tank is worth visiting

28 Oct

Eidos “is a consortium of six universities and three state government agencies committed to improving education and social research, policy and practice. It’s work is conducted through a network of participating research centres and partners, through which Eidos draws the intellectual strength of the research community into an active dialogue with policy makers and practitioners. Within its universities and government agencies, there are more than 55 research and policy centres, and over 300 active senior and early career researchers. Eidos harnesses these resources to maximize their contribution to state, national and global education and social research, policy and practice.”

Research partners include the Australasian Research Management Society, the University of the Sunshine Coast, Central Queensland University, The State of Queensland (Department of Employment and Training), The State of Queensland (Department of Education and the Arts), The State of Queensland (Department of the Premier and Cabinet), Griffith University, James Cook University, Queensland University of Technology, and the University of Southern Queensland.

Don’t let the heavy Queensland representation there fool you into thinking this is a parochial venture. It isn’t.
