Results at the University are well above the sector average, with 96 per cent of our impact and engagement ratings being 'high' or 'medium'. It is the first time the ARC has conducted an evaluation of engagement and impact in the Australian university sector.
The results confirm that University of Sydney academics are at the forefront of globally significant research across the spectrum, generating tremendous benefits for our community.
在电弧参与和影响评估的强劲表现来后几天的 圆弧发表其卓越的研究澳大利亚（ERA）的报告, which rated all 22 of the Fields of 研究 (FoR) undertaken at the University of Sydney as being above or well-above world standard.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (研究) Professor Duncan Ivison said: "The Engagement and Impact Assessment demonstrates the extraordinary role our research plays in the communities we serve – something I know my colleagues care deeply about. The process has also helped us identify even greater opportunities for the future."
Professor Ivison said it was vital to recognise our success is shared with the University's research partners in industry; hospitals; research institutes; and in other government, non-government and community sectors.
"It's no exaggeration to say that we simply couldn't achieve such outcomes without these partnerships both in Australia and across the globe," he said.
The Engagement and Impact Assessment reviewed all 22 FoRs – with Health and Medical Sciences research subdivided into Biomedical and Clinical Sciences and Public and Allied Health Sciences – and included two additional fields: Indigenous and Interdisciplinary research.
Of the 25 case studies submitted by the University of Sydney, 48 per cent were assessed as having a 'high' impact rating, above the sector average of 43 per cent.
参与研究 was also assessed for all 22 FoRs, with the University of Sydney achieving a 'high' rating for 42 percent, above the sector average of 34 percent.
Professor Ivison said: "All 25 of our case studies are wonderful examples of high-quality work from dedicated researchers. I want to say how proud I am of each and every one and I thank them for participating in this first-run assessment process with the ARC."
"The Engagement and Impact Assessment is just one of many ways we are promoting the world-class work that we do. Now that this milestone has passed, we will continue our research activities and awareness campaigns to highlight the University’s research engagement and impact."

参与研究 is the interaction between researchers and research end-users outside of academia, for the mutually beneficial transfer of knowledge, technologies, methods and resources.
Examples of engagement can range from providing consultative advice to government and co-authoring research papers, to being an expert witness in a court case, having strong connections to cultural institutions and supporting writers' festivals.
研究影响 is the contribution that research makes to the economy, society, the environment and culture and lies beyond the contribution to academic research.
Impact can be made through, for example, contributing to the development of policy, informing pedagogy, reducing the costs of health care through new processes, or stimulating public debate around current issues.
