Institutes, Centres and Groups
RMIT is making a global impact in research through its Research Institutes, Groups and Centres.
Our researchers collaborate within our Research Institutes, Centres and Groups and with local and international partners to deliver advanced multidisciplinary solutions.
We work across disciplines and boundaries to conduct applied research focused on design innovation, improving health and lifestyles, developing smart technology and critical issues related to the future of our cities.
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 influential 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.
