Researchers in our institutes and centres collaborate with industry and community partners to advance specialised fields of knowledge.
Their research benefits local and global industry and communities as well as VU’s teaching and learning activities.
All of our research activities are now aligned with two interdisciplinary flagship research themes, delivered through six research focus areas.
Sustainable industries and liveable cities research is undertaken by:
- Institute for Sustainable Industries and Liveable Cities
- Centre of Policy Studies (CoPS)
- Centre for International Research on Education Systems (CIRES).
Sport, health and active living research is undertaken by our Institute for Health and Sport.
