Regional Research Connections

Regional Research Connections is a partnership between RMIT University, the University of South Australia, Southern Cross University, Charles Darwin University and the Regional Australia Institute (RAI). Regional Research Connections combines the specialist regional research capabilities of the four universities with the RAI’s in-house research team, providing new capacity for regional policy research in Australia.

Regional Research Connections will support the Intergovernmental Shared Inquiry Program recently announced by the RAI and supported by the Australian Government and States and Territories with regional responsibilities.
