Excellence made possible by innovative research into renewable energy commercialisation

Newcastle Innovation's successful track record in technology transfer and commercialisation is made possible through its strategic relationship with the University of Newcastle.

The Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment is one of the leading faculties of its kind in Australia and is internationally recognised for an outstanding research record, which places its engineering schools among the best in Australia.

The Faculty of Science and Information Technology has a strong commitment to fundamental and applied research with equally high international standards. Within its schools the Faculty has established international reputations and formed strong, viable research group and is increasing industry partnerships in the Hunter region and beyond through applied research and development collaborations.

This research-intensive environment has helped to attract a high standard of academic research staff from throughout Australia and around the world. Many of staff are leaders in their fields, carrying out internationally recognised work that invariably attracts high levels of funding.

Through collaborative research the Faculties work with Newcastle Innovation in forging partnerships with industry and professionals. These interactions with industry bring real world technology issues into research laboratories, helping to maintain a 'forward looking' approach to education and research.
