Conducting science that matters is the guiding principle of Griffith Sciences’ Environmental Futures Research Institute (EFRI). By exploring new science frontiers, stimulating innovation and influencing public policy, EFRI members are improving the health and well-being of people by developing clean energy sources; advancing knowledge of ecosystems and the impact on human health and wellbeing, combating worldwide food and water shortages; and revealing the full story of the origins of the people in our region and ancient migrations. EFRI's research spans 39 countries, including more than 170 global collaborators across private enterprise, government agencies, plus numerous other universities and specialist research institutes.
The Institute is equipped with facilities that are the envy of research institutes across the country. Housing the Centre for Clean Environment and Energy provides EFRI a noted expertise in pollutants affecting the aquatic environment, soils, plus renewable green energy sources. A uniquely designed and built 3D Nano-printer, manufactured to exact specifications, will assist the Institute’s work across research streams, while purpose-built and appropriately stocked research laboratories and centres further enhance research capabilities.
Bringing together a large number of committed and outstanding researchers who share the common goal of undertaking research of immediate relevance to critical environmental issues.
With environmental sustainability very much a topical issue, EFRI continues to be inundated with enthusiastic candidates for its higher degrees by research and PhD opportunities.
