Research Impact

Research at Flinders explores some truly fundamental questions and tackles some of the most important real-world challenges of our time.

Flinders is a significant and growing presence in research and innovation in Australia and internationally.

We host national research centres and collaborate with universities and research institutes across the world to explore a wide range of issues, ideas and problems, finding new possibilities and solutions, further questions and new knowledge.

We engage closely with industry partners and end-users to ensure that our research makes a difference.

Our Medical Device Research Institute, for example, develops, tests and makes available practical tools to assist people with both physical and cognitive disabilities, as well as social disadvantage. Many of our researchers work alongside rural and regional populations to ensure a vibrant and sustainable future for Australia's remote and regional populations. Flinders molecular technologists are working with industry to create more effective products and cleaner industries, and Flinders cultural and humanities researchers are opening the world of the creative arts to new analysis with their e-research initiatives.

Flinders' research is changing the world. Let us change yours for the better.
