Our research portfolio is organised around a number of themes reflecting our wide range of expertise
Our home in South-East Queensland is one of the fastest growing metropolitan regions in Australia, and provides a living laboratory for much of our research on growth management and urban resilience. Encompassing the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management, we are also focused on urban water research.
