Research - Policy - Impact
Eidos Institute brings together some of Australia’s greatest researchers and policy makers to influence current trends and challenges in social and economic realms. With the intention to generate awareness of public policy issues, Eidos brings professional insights and new ideas together.
Eidos brokers teams of academics and consultants from within its membership as well as from its national network of associates in order to deliver large-scale and long-term projects of importance. Our emphasis on quality research translates to good policy outcomes.
Eidos is a not-for-profit company and has recently been granted charity status. The Institute has successfully completed large-scale research, evaluation and development projects for a variety of clients utilising its growing network of 10 Universities.
Eidos Institute has received funding of more than $8 million over the past five years. The entire annual surplus is reinvested to support priority research by Government and University members via the Eidos Annual Grants Program.
Examples of previous work include:
- Design and administration of surveys measuring skill requirements for major economic projects in Queensland.
- Studies on the links between knowledge economy, labour market and higher education.
- Studies dedicated to skilling and re-skilling people to enter, remain and re-enter the labour market – more recently focused on employment-based training, skills shortages, and the occupational mobility of workers.
- Research, reporting and policy advice on regional, State and national labour markets, education and training issues, and emerging trends. Determinants of labour demand, elasticities and the impact of resourcing approaches. The existence and measurement of external impacts to education.
- Development of a team approach to the continuous improvement of processes, procedures and quality systems we have implemented.
