Great research requires new perspectives, an environment which encourages the collision of different ideas and the support of a collegiate community dedicated to the strengthening of ideas and committed to purposeful change.
The University of Tasmania chooses to pursue excellence across five Research Themes, in partnership with domestic and international institutions that are prepared to put interesting, intellectually-sound ideas into action. This engagement provides a stepping-stone to effective action that can benefit the global community in line with the University’s Research Strategy (PDF 2.7MB) and International Strategy.
