On Christmas Eve 2021, decisions were announced on applications for 2022 Discovery Projects to be awarded by the Australian Research Council.
587 projects across the sciences and humanities passed through peer review and were approved for funding.
However, an additional six projects had funding vetoed by the acting Minister despite passing through vigorour peer review and being recommended for funding.
This interference in the ARC's usual decision making has recevied considerable criticism.
This open letter signed by 63 ARC Laureate Fellows is a response to this incident.
