Research excellence

Sydney is home to cutting-edge R&D and testing facilities across wide-ranging fields of expertise.

From next-generation communications, energy technology, robotics and biotechnology, to eResearch, and health and medical research, the scope of science and research in NSW is outstanding.

The State is home to many inventions we take for granted, including hearing implants, Wi-Fi technology, Google Maps and the Jameson Cell (used for separating minerals in mining). Our research institutions are making a real difference to our understanding of today’s world, and how we work and live in it.

We actively engage with the State’s 11 universities, to profile their research excellence and help our academics attract esteemed international colleagues to collaborate in Sydney (through conferencing).

NSW is firmly committed to innovation and technology development. It’s home to 26 Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs), which focus on industry partnerships to achieve commercial outcomes, and 9 Centres of Excellence, which represent the highest calibre of publicly-funded research within the Australian research system, as well as a number of specialised research centres and medical health institutes.

And, to ensure a bright future, the NSW Government has developed a network of collaborative public-private partnerships across key sectors of the local economy. Called Knowledge Hubs, and led by industry, this initiative brings businesses, research organisations and industry associations together to drive innovation and growth within our identified sectors of comparative advantage.
