Cash support from research end-users (specified HERDC Category 1 and Categories 2, 3(i,ii,iii) and 4)
This indicator focused on the amount of cash support that research end-users provided to institutions for research with the engagement reference period. It captured the cash contributions from research end-users as per the definition of research end-user. It was considered that funding of this type may point to engagement with research end-users as it indicates the interaction of researchers with end-users for a mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources.
Institutions reported cash contributions from research end-users against a specified list of HERDC Category 1 grants and any relevant funding in HERDC Categories 2, 3(i,ii,iii), and 4 by FoR code.
The focus of the assessment was on the total amount of cash, over the reference period, not individual categories.
Cash support from end-users appears as a dollar value and as a proportion of the total HERDC income. Higher dollar values show greater monetary support by research end-users. Higher proportions of cash support show that end-users are provided a larger portion of financial research support.
Cash Support from research end-users—income and percentages are displayed as distribution charts. Each chart shows the number of UoAs in each banding.
For cash support (income), the band is exclusive of the value of the band. So for example, in 01 Mathematics, there were 12 UoAs in the band ($1 to less than $700,000).
For cash support as a percentage of total HERDC income, the band is inclusive of its value. For example, 01 Mathematics there was 1 UoA with percentages greater than 0 per cent and less than, or equal to, 5 per cent.
