The Group of Eight (Go8) universities are proud to be recognised globally as Australia's eight leading research universities. We position ourselves as elite but not elitist, as educating tomorrow's leaders not just training tomorrow's workers.
How to nurture Nobel Laureates? What a question to consider in just seven minutes!
The Go8, which I represent as Chief Executive here today, certainly has some strong and compelling views on the subject….but I thought I should delve into history first.

Senator Nick Xenophon’s proposal for yet another review of higher education turned out to be a circuit breaker, sort of. While nobody much liked it, his call for another committee started people talking about ways to break the Senate stalemate over the deregulation legislation. However the university lobby groups, which would be crucial to any review certainly made it clear that it is time for a deal not a debate.
