Research at RMIT
As a global university of technology, design and enterprise, RMIT brings unique capabilities to research through a transdisciplinary approach. Our academic expertise, strong links to research partners and consideration of technological and social dimensions enables us to find solutions to critical problems impacting communities and the environment.
We deploy our distinctive research capabilities to make new discoveries, to innovate through practice and to generate ideas and culture that enrich the economy and community. Our unique mix of interdisciplinary expertise and collaborative clustering will help to solve complex local, national and global problems (RMIT Strategic Plan 2020).
RMIT is driven by impact and, as the world economy transforms, the University has a responsibility to make the resulting changes work for the whole of society. In support of this, RMIT has created a cohesive and supportive environment for entrepreneurship and innovation activity within RMIT’s research networks of enabling capability platforms (ECPs), research centres, groups and research collaborations.
