Research

We will bring the world to our regions and take our regions to the world through relevant research solutions to local, national and global problems.

Our world-class researchers drive discoveries that challenge conventional thinking, break new ground and change lives. By working with our industry, community and government partners, we translate new knowledge into innovations that make a real difference – to our communities, our economy and our planet.
