Research at ECU is growing strongly, led by successful strategies to develop a vibrant research culture which aligns with and informs our learning and teaching activities.
The University's approach to its research is differentiated, targeted and welcoming of quality collaborative partners. Our strategies include: concentrating research in areas of strength and excellence; engaging widely with local, national and international institutions, industry and community partners, and all levels of government; establishing and partnering in research centres; appointing researchers who are leaders in their fields; and commercialising applied outcomes.
