Research News

The Foreign Relations Act

Please note requirements staff need to follow when engaging in international collaborations. The University also continues to advocate widely on the value of international collaborations, believing that any additional Government regulation and monitoring should be proportionate to risk, and balanced against the vast majority of international engagements that deliver enormous and valuable benefit to Australian society and beyond.

It is important that colleagues familiarise themselves with the requirements under the Act.  Further information regarding the Scheme is available in the University’s Knowledge Base Article.
