Highly skilled and engaged researchers

Research excellence underpins our capacity to collaborate with the world’s best researchers and to engage effectively with end-users. As evidenced by Excellence in Research for Australia, it is clear that UniSA researchers are of outstanding quality. In 2018, 20 individual fields of research at UniSA ranked as ‘well above world class’ with FII researchers contributing to a number of these fields, including Physical and Structural Chemistry, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Materials Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

But our impact extends beyond primary excellence. FII fosters a research environment with the interdisciplinary capacity and agility to address research questions across a range of priority areas. Our research strengths are led by top researchers in their fields, and teams of researchers, research fellows and higher degree by research students collaborate across disciplines and work with industry partners to deliver innovative solutions.
