At Western Sydney University our research centres and groups are tackling some of society's biggest challenges - the environment, cultural and social change, public health, the economy, urban and regional development, to name just a few.
A major strength of our research program is its interdisciplinary approach and collaboration with industry, government and the community.
Our internationally-recognised researchers are conducting high-impact research across a diverse range of research projects – many of which are funded through prestigious Australian Research Council grants.
