The ECU-led Collaborative Research Network focuses on growing research excellence at the University through partnership and engagement.

It aims to create world-class research capacity and outcomes through collaborative partnership with nine universities across Australia.


The Collaborative Research Network program is part of a suite of initiatives established by the Australian Government to reform higher education teaching, learning, research and research training.

The program aims to lead to a more productive and effective university system by focussing on:

  • quality and excellence;
  • collaboration;
  • sustainability; and
  • end-user engagement
