Research Institutes, Centres and Groups
RMIT is making a global impact in research through collaborations with local and international partners to deliver advanced multidisciplinary solutions.
RMIT research institutes ceased operation at the end of 2015, ending an era of successful collaboration under a more traditional discipline based research framework which has been replaced by Enabling Capability Platforms in eight focus areas.
Our four Research Institutes are the flagships of RMIT’s research endeavour and reputation. They contribute to global knowledge in our areas of expertise.
