Research with impact
At UOW we’re transforming the way we do research.
Now in its fourth year, our challenge-led interdisciplinary research program is all about the people and the projects.
We nurture projects, collaborating with industry, government, institutions and other universities to foster a supportive research community to drive social, economic and cultural change.
With 350 researchers collaborating on more than 70 interdisciplinary projects we're approaching global issues in a myriad of ways. With the aim of transforming lives and regions, we take a global view by tackling challenges paramount to our local region but with the potential to make a difference on a larger scale.
