Research Analysis, Performance and Profile Office
The Research Analysis, Performance and Profile Office (formerly known as the Excellence in Research for Australia or the ERA Office) is a dedicated unit established to support the goal of continuously improving UNSW’s position as a leading research intensive university in Australia.
The Research Analysis, Performance and Profile (RAPP) Office portfolio includes coordinating and managing the University’s submissions to the Excellence in Research in Australia (ERA) government exercises, and providing strategic advice and data support to the DVC-Research on the University’s research performance and profile. Under its new name, the RAPP Office also supports the strategic positioning of UNSW in various world ranking systems such as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, the QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) World University Rankings, and the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), more commonly referred to as the Shanghai Jiao Tong University Rankings.
The RAPP Office will continue to coordinate and manage the UNSW ERA Submissions, which is targeted to take place next in 2015.
