A global research powerhouse

The University of Melbourne is Australia's No. 1 university and a national leader for research income and social impact indicators. Our cross-disciplinary research is focussed on three key themes: understanding our place and purpose; fostering health and well being; and supporting sustainability and resilience.

The five Melbourne Research Institutes bring together researchers from across the University to tackle society’s complex problems in innovative ways.  Our Institutes work with industry, government and not-for profit organisations in Australia and overseas to challenge current thinking and offer new solutions that change our world.
