Abstract: Australia’s higher education sector is facing a watershed moment of its research funding regime. The Federal Government has proposed to change from the long-standing funding model that heavily based on publication output, to one based on publication plus industry engagement. In this paper, we take stock of how research funding is raised and allocated within the sector over the past two decades. It is found that the share of total research funding by university groups have barely changed. But the discipline of Biological and Clinical Sciences has increasingly dominated competitive funding schemes..
