Victoria University has consolidated its research activity. From 2018 research of the Centre of Applied Informatics is located within the Institute for Sustainable Industries and Liveable Cities.
Centre for Applied Informatics (CAI) focuses on data mining, sensor networks, e-research with applications in health care and environmental studies, and we have an international reputation in these areas. CAI’s research has been funded by 10 Australian Research Council (ARC) projects since 2003. CAI has worked successfully with government and industry organisations to apply its core techniques in data mining and sensor networks in e-Health and e-Environment fields.
Below is a list of CAI's research funding.
