Together, we’re stronger

At Charles Darwin University our many partnerships are vital to our strategic aims as well as to the economic growth of our region. Our collaborations bring many diverse benefits, from supporting vocational and higher education to building collaborative commercial ventures.

Strong partnerships are also essential to our research. When we draw from a range of sources with specialist knowledge and differing viewpoints, we all benefit. We welcome research partners including governments, professional associations, private enterprise, the community, and other research, training and educational providers.

CDU enterprise

Meet our people

Animal ethics

CDU has a strong commitment to research excellence and integrity. Through our world-class teaching and research profile, we deliver a significant contribution to furthering animal welfare and conservation in Australia and internationally.

Ensuring the welfare and ethical use of animals associated with that research is the cornerstone of the work of CDU animal ethics personnel and the CDU Animal Ethics Committee (AEC).


The Northern Australian Fire Information system developed by Charles Darwin University is a critical management tool for the pastoral industry. It informs how we conduct controlled burns; infrastructure planning; estimating paddock stocking rates; collecting detailed images of remote areas; understanding previous fire history; and planning and response in bush fire incidences.
