Concentrated within the central unit of Research and Innovation, we provide high quality support and administration of research and consultancy projects, from conception to completion.

Part of a young and agile University, CDU’s research support is a result of strong collaboration and coordination between Research and Innovation, CDU Library, Information Technology Management Services, CDU Global, Menzies School of Health Research, and our six Colleges, Research Institutes, and Centres.

Our support is constantly being improved with input from our research staff.

Maximising research impact and excellence

For decades, CDU has undertaken research which has led to real-world benefits for Northern Australia and beyond.

Based on four components of research impact: understanding; preparing; making; and telling, we have developed a co-designed approach to maximising the reach and significance of the work we do.

Research and Innovation provides strategic support to a range of initiatives to encourage and reward CDU research excellence.This includes many schemes such as support for the conceptualisation and development of new projects, open access support for highly ranked publications, and other incentives.
