Using our industry, government and institutional networks, we are building our global research footprint across four key themes, supported by world-class Research Institutes and Strategic Research Centres.
Deakin is a key partner in the Geelong Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases – Australia’s first “One Health” facility, which is taking a new, multidisciplinary approach to managing infectious diseases in people, animals, and the environment – and is set to play a leading role in protecting Australia and other nations from the threat of emerging and zoonotic infectious diseases.
Deakin is a world leader in carbon fibre, short fibre, metals and steel research, electromaterials, corrosion, nanotechnology and composite materials. We are home to the globally unique, open-access carbon fibre/composite research facility, Carbon Nexus, which is supporting the transition to advanced manufacturing in industries as diverse as aerospace, automotive, defence and construction.
Detailed research is enlarging understanding of Australia’s parrots, turtles, kangaroos, and many other bird, animal and plant species – and building complex knowledge about their interconnectedness.
Deakin is an Australian research hub on the Middle East and has recently created an innovative Chair in Islamic Studies and Intercultural Dialogue, as well as leading the Australian Intervention Support Hub –a new national centre that aims to counter radicalisation and violent extremism.
