Research centres

CSU has four University Research Centres. They are designed to bring together staff around a coherent research theme. Each Centre has broad influence and engagement across the University

University Research Centres leverage their resources to attract external funding to promote achievement as they engage in identifying, pursuing and sharing intellectual leadership with quality domestic and international research partners. The research conducted within the Centres is strongly complemented by research conducted with the Faculties of the University.
