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).

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