Main Content

Welcome to Research

At Edith Cowan University, we're building our reputation on our impact rather than our age. Our progressive nature drives our thirst for knowledge and desire for creating meaningful change in the world.

Research themes

Our research work focuses on four themes that recognise both our collective expertise and our progressive view of the world. Each theme has a Research Theme Leader who facilitates research partnerships between ECU researchers and industry, government and community organisations.

World-class research

Our world-class research transcends medical practice, driving health outcomes and quality of life. It leverages our unique geographical location, tying the natural environment to the built. It's also at the forefront of shaping our digital future, addressing the challenges of the digital revolution. And it shapes the culturally-rich society we live in today, informing and protecting communities.

We are also proud to have a number of outstanding researchers, some of whom have Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds. At ECU we leverage this expertise to provide insight into culturally appropriate conduct and protocols in research relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
