Sustainability, aquaculture and forestry are the core research foci at USC.

The 2012 Excellence in Research for Australia evaluation rated USC’s performance as above world standard in the key research focus area of applied genetics in the fields of forestry and aquaculture.

Sustainability Research Centre

The centre encompasses a range of disciplines and conducts transdisciplinary research aligned with social, behavioural and economic sciences. The centre's disciplinary focus is on the social sciences, with niche area research projects focused on societal adaptation.

GeneCology Research Centre

The centre operates in the areas of ecology, genomics and physiology, with researchers from the group partners in the Seafood CRC, the cooperative research centre that achieved the world-first captive breeding of Southern Bluefin Tuna.

Forest Industries Research Centre

The new centre will focus on the economic and environmental sustainability of forest industries. Research will concentrate on tropical and sub-tropical forestry and the processing of novel commercial species to support a strong value-added processing sector.

University of the Sunshine Coast Herbarium

The herbarium houses a collection of plant specimens donated by the Queensland Forestry Research Institute, now housed in a purpose-built space within the Library.

National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility 

The University is also a partner in the Facility, a national interdisciplinary effort to generate the information needed by decision-makers in government and in vulnerable sectors and communities to manage the risks of climate change impacts.
