Research concentrations

The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) is in a period of rapid research development and growth, building research capacity, productivity and output through strategic partnerships and collaborations.

Research at USC is currently focused through eight Research concentrations.

Collaborative Research Networks (CRN)

In 2011 the University was awarded funding of A$5.4m from the Commonwealth for the Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) USC Research Futures Project.

CRN funding is designed to support research capacity building at USC through developing collaborative activities with leading researchers and groups at Griffith University and the University of Tasmania in the nominated research strength areas of:

  • Aquaculture
  • Water sciences
  • Sustainability
  • Forestry and forest sciences

CRN funds also support the work of the USC Centre for Leadership in Research Development (CLRD) with advisory input from Professor Paul Burnett, Dean of Research and Research Training, Queensland University of Technology.
