Research that matters

Monash is a university that seeks to make a difference. We judge our research not only by its academic excellence, but by the impact it has on the communities we engage with and serve.

Our researchers have always looked beyond traditional boundaries, creating new frontiers and discovering new ways of approaching fields like health, injury prevention and the environment.

But we have always recognised that our work does not end at the "Eureka!" moment – it continues until we have found a way to turn our breakthrough into a change for the better.

We also know that the change we seek to effect is only possible in partnership with others. Some of our most significant achievements have come with the assistance of government, industry and other world-class research organisations.

To create research that matters, we have to be a university of great researchers and great collaborators.
