Our research performance

Research performance at UniSA has continued to grow year by year, with more that 97 per cent of our research output are at or above world class according to the Excellence in Research for Australia rankings – an impressive result for a young university. 

Our emphasis on research collaboration has resulted in our participation in a number of Cooperative Research Centres, which are Federal Government supported research initiatives to address major challenges facing Australia. The University also hosts the Australian Research Council (ARC) Special Research Centre for Particle and Material Interfaces – still the only ARC Special Research Centre hosted entirely by a post-1987 university.
