Global Impact Clusters
Energy, Resources, Food and Water

Energy, Resources, Food and Water

As global sustainability challenges increasingly impact our environment, industries, and society, innovation becomes more vital with every passing day. To help address these emerging issues, the University of Newcastle has established the Global Impact Cluster for Energy, Resources, Food and Water (GIC ERFW).

Building on the existing capacity and research excellence established through the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources (NIER) in areas including the transformation of the energy system and sustainability in the energy and resources sector, the GIC for Energy, Resources, Food and Water (GIC ERFW) encompasses additional critical areas such as water and agribusiness to expand our research agenda to address important challenges facing these sectors.

This cooperative network model empowers students and researchers to tackle global challenges and make a greater collective impact in critical areas associated with energy, resources, food and water.
