University of New South Wales is a member of the Group of Eight and one of Australia's leading research intensive universities. While we conduct research across a wide range of disciplines, we are investing considerable resources in particular areas where we feel we can make a difference. This involves building on existing strengths, in fields where we are already a world leader, as well as identifying emerging problems and opportunities, and moving to meet the challenge.
Research Strengths and Key Research Areas:
UNSW has a reputation for international research excellence in the following areas of research strength:
UNSW is committed to providing external partners from business and government high quality and relevant research outcomes across a broad range of disciplines and commercial activities. The University draws together a wide diversity of knowledge to offer a one-stop shop for everything from specific problem-solving to Intellectual Property (IP) development, transfer and commercialisation.
NewSouth Innovations focuses on knowledge and technology transfer opportunities for research undertaken at UNSW. UNSW is the first University in Australia to offer a selection of UNSW's intellectual property to the private sector to develop for free, with simplified, one-page agreements replacing complicated licensing negotiations.
