Research at Western addresses complex problems and identifies opportunities to shape a better world. Research Week is our annual showcase of research excellence, progress and impact and you are invited to join us as we hear from leading researchers and academics as they shape solutions for national and international issues.

Our theme this year reflects our approach to finding solutions: Bold Research Futures sees a future for impactful research that works collaboratively with government, industry, and other organisations on the most important issues affecting our region: health, education, environment, society, and much more.

We see a place for integrating the arts and humanities with the sciences and technology, where Western researchers combine clever thinking with specialist expertise and local knowledge of our region.

We invite you to share our research journey with us - now and into the future.
