Transforming lives through research
Excellent research requires excellent ideas. We have some of the best researchers in the world working for us, developing ideas that make a positive impact and difference to the lives of people, the economy and the environment.
But we don't do this on our own – we build strong relationships and partnerships with industry, non-government organisations, public bodies and institutions across the world. This helps us achieve the University’s core purpose: to transform lives locally and globally. We focus our collective energy across four interdisciplinary challenge-led themes, which enables our research to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals and make a positive contribution to tackle challenges ranging from health, climate change, food security to poverty and social justice.
