The Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) and the Australia and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) jointly established the Business Academic Research Directors’ Network (BARDsNet).
In this turbulent time for research funding performance, training places, commercialisation and other research-related issues, BARDsNet exists to:
- Provide a learning platform for the people who have line responsibility for administering research in business faculties and schools
- Enhance the research capacities of business faculties and schools through identifying and implementing new strategies and ideas
- Act, where appropriate, to influence research policy, which enhances research infrastructure in Australia and New Zealand
- Identify collaborative ways of working together as business academic research directors across Australia and New Zealand.
