Institutes, Centres and Groups
RMIT is making a global impact in research through its Research Institutes, Groups and Centres.
RMIT academics work across disciplines and boundaries to conduct applied research towards improving health and lifestyle, designing the future, the future of cities, smart technology solutions and sustainability and climate change challenges. This research is focused within Institutes, Centres and Groups that facilitate and support collaborative research activity.
The variety of expertise in RMIT's research Institutes, Centres and Groups demonstrate our diverse research capabilities and provide academics with the opportunity to share knowledge, engage in intellectual debate, to collaborate and to deliver innovative solutions and gives researchers access to state of the art equipment and facilities.
Through their focus on applied research, RMIT's Research Institutes, Centres and Groups have achieved excellent results in Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) and continue to strive to make a global impact.
Research Institutes are the flagships of RMIT's research culture, attracting world renowned academics to find answers to complex research questions.
Centres are recognised by their high impact, cross disciplinary research, closely linked to industry and influencial at a National level.
Discipline focussed research that builds the research capacity of RMIT's Schools and provides pathways for new researchers.
RMIT contributes to major multi-partner research collaborations with Universities, Industry and Government on a National and International scale.
