Large research collaborations

The quality of our research capability in key areas and its supporting infrastructure has resulted in the attraction of significant long-term centre government funding for large collaborative research initiatives.

Collaborate with QUT

We provide research solutions and partnership opportunities for industry, government, and the nonprofit and community sectors.

If your organisation is interested in participating in any of these research initiatives, contact our Office of Research.

Centres of Excellence

We are a core participant in these Australian Research Council (ARC) Centres of Excellence:

Centres of Research Excellence (CRE)

These centres are funded under the National Health and Medical Research Council's (NHMRC) Centres of Research Excellence (CRE) scheme.

The Centre of Research Excellence in End of Life Care was awarded $2.5 million over five years. It addresses the urgent need for evidence-based end-of-life service delivery strategies that are responsive to the complex, unpredictable and often extended patterns of disease progression.

The Centre of Research Excellence in Reducing Healthcare Associated Infections (CRE-RHAI) was awarded $2.49 million over five years. The centre is developing innovative and cost-effective strategies to reduce healthcare-associated infections in Australia.

Cooperative Research Centres (CRC)

The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program is an Australian Government initiative that supports industry-led research collaborations between researchers, industry and the community. CRCs are designed to deliver significant economic, environmental and social benefits to Australia.

We are currently involved in these Cooperative Research Centres:

We are also involved in the Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC), which is funded by the Department of Defence and administered by the CRC program.

Research centres

The Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre Queensland (APCRC-Q) has a $7.5 million Commonwealth grant over five years. This centre, led by QUT and based at Princess Alexandra Hospital's Biomedical Precinct, works closely with APCRC -Victoria and provides an integrated, transdisciplinary and comprehensive prostate cancer research centre that supports a range of translational activities.

The Centre for Tropical Crops and Biocommodities received over $15 million in external funding in 2014. The centre conducts commercial research in plant biotechnology, sugarcane processing and biomass conversion for high value product development.

The Genomics Research Centre (GRC) has received over $13 million in external funding from 2013 through to 2020. The centre is located within QUT's Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) and undertakes research on the genetic basis of disease using its unique population resources and by applying genetic studies to common, complex human disorders.
