Strategic Research Initiatives

Western Sydney University’s research has benefited from a model that leverages critical mass, collaboration and research leadership through its current Research Centres and Institutes. The clear value of the existing model and the opportunity afforded by the University’s increased research capacity in a number of unique areas suggests the time is now right to further develop this collective based approach, extending the current cohort with a focus on partnerships and impact.

The Office of the DVC and Vice-President (Research and Innovation) is calling for Expressions of Interest for Strategic Research Initiatives (SRIs). Research cohorts interested in leveraging increased capacity and establishing new Initiatives are asked to complete an initial stage EoI that reflects an alignment with WSU’s research strengths, how the SRI addresses a global challenge and how it supports Western’s ambitions.

EoIs for SRIs should be submitted to Annette McLaren, Senior Policy Advisor and Project Manager, at A.Mclaren@westernsydney.edu.au by 2 July 2018.
