Socio-Economic Objectives codes

SEO codes are included on Certification Forms, in grant applications, and used for Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA). This classification categorises activities according to the intended purpose or outcome of the research.

The SEO is a hierarchical classification, including the following levels: Sector (letter), Divisions (2 digits), Groups (4 digits) and Objectives (6 digits). Each level is identified by a unique number.

Example

Sector C Society

Division 94 Law, Politics and Community Services
Group 9403 International Relations

Objective 940302 International Aid and Development

SEO codes can be found on the Australian Bureau of Statistics website.
