Research Environment

Our research environment promotes cross- and inter-disciplinary partnership and collaboration with external organisations and communities. Our researchers are embedded in a culture of good research practice and innovation to achieve excellence, societal and economic impact.

Our research culture is ambitious, inclusive and supportive. Our focus is on the continuous enhancement of the quality, scope and capacity of our research activities, in particular, the development and evidence-based achievements of our research staff and students.

Our vision is to inspire today’s brightest researchers to make a major impact on global society, and to become the leaders of tomorrow in whatever field they pursue.

Our strategic research activity is focussed around themes to address key local, national and international priorities, and to build on our existing areas of expertise and our industry-facing heritage. Our state of the art facilities support exploration and innovation in focussed discipline areas and priority economic sectors.
