Our research development strategy promotes a culture of research committed to responsible and ethical research practices and the open exchange of ideas, freedom of expression and inquiry. We promote multidisciplinary research collaborations and connect our research with market and community needs in Australia and overseas.
Research and research training at VU reflects these values:
- rigour and excellence in critical inquiry
- innovation, relevance and impact
- integrity and ethics in research conduct
- partnerships and collaboration
- intellectual fulfilment.
We adopt best practice in managing the conduct of research and ensure all research at VU complies with the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research. The Code has been jointly developed by the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Australian Research Council and Universities Australia to assist the responsible conduct of research in universities and other public sector research institutions.
