Worth it?

Linking to the Australian again:

QUT researcher Nicholas Graves, who with colleagues in the faculty of health conducted the survey, said the system was unsustainable. “We are getting busier and busier . . . and it’s not sustainable to be spending six to seven weeks on a grant application,” he said.

Professor Graves said the project information sent to reviewers should be culled to just 10-12 pages instead of more than 100.

Not sure that these proposals are for root-and-branch reform but any step is good.
