In 2019 a review and consultation was started for the Australia and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC). From the documentation: "The Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC) is a set of three related classifications developed for use in the measurement and analysis of research and experimental development (R&D) undertaken in Australia and New Zealand. ANZSRC is used both in the public and private sectors. It allows the comparison of R&D data between sectors of the economy (e.g. general government, private non-profit organisations, business enterprises and educational institutions)." As part of the changes, Humanitarian Engineering was a new field that was added to the 09 Engineering Field of Research (FoR) classification. This is great recognition of the emergence of the area and would allow further investment, activities and research to be undertaken and recognised. These are important for tracking and justifying investment and activities in broad areas of research. Comments on the proposed changes are welcome from individuals and organisations until February 10, 2020. Could we have an agreed submission on the proposed changes from this group, to advocate for this change? Should Humanitarian Engineering actually be a separate 4-digit category with then multiple 6-digit categories for specific areas (such as contexts) and activities (such as appropriate technology, M&E, capacity building, ...)?
