ARC National Interest Test Statement

The National Interest Test (NIT) Statement is a standalone statement to demonstrate societal benefits of the proposed research beyond the academic community. The NIT statement is one of four areas of assessment considered when recommending applications for funding. An application whose NIT Statement does not pass the 'test' will not be recommended for funding. It is vital that all ARC applicants spend time to ensure that their NIT statement will meet the key consideration as set out by the ARC. Find out more about the NIT statement.
