Research institutes and centres

The University's seven flagship research institutes and 17 research centres are delivering fundamental advances in knowledge to address the needs of our changing world. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, UniSA's research facilities cross boundaries and bring together a great diversity of ideas, generating significant advances in technologies, theories and applications of knowledge.

Among our research facilities are a number of national research centres, including Cooperative Research Centres. We rank an impressive fifth in Australia for funding received to support CRCs.

Our institutes and centres provide a vibrant research environment for our research degree students, who often work within or in close alignment with a research facility.
