NCRISIS averted

The recent crisis resulting from the NCRIS funding being linked to the passage of the higher education bill brought out a wonderfully diverse and committed array of NCRIS supporters amongst the research community and the media. Many spoke out on radio and TV, in the newspapers and through social media. We played our part in highlighting the success of the NCRIS program and the impact that its cessation would have on Australian science. Below, we present a selection of media and press coverage that follows the story and our contribution to it.
