Professor Carmignani said it was an honour to be nominated by the university and a great opportunity to be contributing research quality across Australia.
“It’s also recognition of Griffith’s growing reputation as a research institution to delivering these strong research outputs. It’s indeed exciting and challenging and I really look forward to providing a contribution.”
There are 195 members on the ARC College of Experts. They play a key role in identifying research excellence, moderating external assessments and recommending fundable proposals.
