Agents of change
Our research students are entrepreneurial agents of change, overcoming the challenges of today while shaping the environments and economies of the future.
Research and innovation
We aspire to be a globally leading university through high-impact, transdisciplinary research, strong partnerships, and a unique focus on technology and innovation, led by our Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research and Innovation Christopher Barner-Kowollik.
Our culture values high performance and agility, and encourages entrepreneurship in students, staff and alumni, to drive economic activity in the real world.
Equity and diversity
With the support of our executive leadership, we're ensuring that women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) receive every opportunity to succeed.
We're also dedicated to sponsoring increased Indigenous research participation among our research students and academics.
Support for researchers
QUT’s Office for Scholarly Communication (OSC) provides advice, infrastructure and tools to make our researchers’ findings accessible to the world.
In 2003 QUT developed the world’s first institutional open access policy. QUT ePrints, our institutional repository, showcases the research output of QUT staff and postgraduate students.
The OSC has an Advisory Group chaired by Professor Louise Hafner Bishop.
Our researchers are pushing the boundaries of their fields and making impacts internationally. Their contributions strengthen our research community and are transforming us into a global leader solving the challenges of today and of the future.
Ethics and integrity
The Office of Research Ethics and Integrity helps our researchers ensure their research meets national ethical standards for human, animal and biological research.
We also make sure that all practices are consistent with the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research.
