Funding and Advocacy

A strategic focus area for DPRET is advocacy for adequate levels of funding for psychological science and for education and training in psychology. Two DPRET Forum working groups focus specifically on increasing the funding for psychology research and for psychology programs at Australian higher education providers. These working groups also actively advocate for policy reform and inform policy formulation to improve the impact and reach of psychological research in Australia.
