Investment in university infrastructure will benefit the nation

Innovative Research Universities (IRU) Australia congratulates the Australian Government on its Nation Building package which will provide over $1 billion to Australia’s universities to fund teaching and learning infrastructure projects and fast-track funding allocations through the Education Investment Fund (EIF).

“Australia’s universities play a vital role in nation building through their production of graduates, conduct of research and significant contributions to intellectual, social, cultural and economic advancement,” IRU Australia Chair, Professor John Yovich, said today.
