Flinders University’s ratings in the 2010 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) report confirm its strength in medical research, an area traditionally very strong in Australia, with rankings above or well above world standard.
Other fields at Flinders with rankings considerably above both world and national averages include criminology, the performing arts and creative writing.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor David Day said medical research, law and performing arts have been continuous and long-term research strengths for the University, receiving targeted research investment.
“We are delighted this has been recognised through the ERA initiative,” Professor Day said.
“More than half of the disciplines assessed at Flinders were ranked at world standard or above, confirming our status as a research intensive university,” he said.
“We will be working hard to improve those areas further.”
