A new name for Horsham Campus Research Precinct

With the change in name of the University to Federation University Australia, Horsham Campus Research Precinct is also having a name change. From January 1 2014 we will be the Wimmera Research Group. The change in name does not mean a change in focus; we continue to work on projects that investigate aspects of the sustainability of rural and regional communities, such as the Building local government change agents for resilient and sustainable communities, with local organisations and agencies.
