What’s new in 2017?

  • AAMRI is collecting workforce data by gender in this year’s survey. While we understand that MRIs classify research staff differently from universities, higher education Academic Levels will be used as a guide for defining research staff seniority. This will enable some comparison with the higher education sector as well as helping with consistent reporting for MRIs in this survey. Extensive lists of examples are given in each category on the worksheet.
  • International staff and students (other than research higher degree students) are reported separately from “other” staff and students (are not used to calculated fees).
