Research at RMIT aims to solve critical global problems and to deliver significant economic, social and environmental impact.
Unlike conventional discipline-based research structures, the Enabling Capability Platforms connect researchers from multiple disciplines and from across Colleges under a thematic umbrella.

The Enabling Capability Platforms will be a major conduit through which breadth and depth is developed in areas of strength resulting in RMIT becoming more widely recognised for its research relevance beyond the academic world.
The Enabling Capability Platforms consist of the following research clusters:
