Our partnerships

Bringing research and the community together

Our partnerships connect Federation University Australia’s research and innovation with industry, government and the community to create collaborations that have a positive impact.

These partnerships are productive, innovative, professional and mutually beneficial for our communities and regions.

Industry and community sectors

Our industry and community partnerships align Federation University Australia with a wide range of creators, builders and innovators in Ballarat, Gippsland/Berwick and beyond.

To help us enhance partnerships and further the University’s education, training, research and innovation goals, we’ve identified broad industry sectors and enabling areas relevant to the communities and regions in which we operate.

These industry sectors have been developed to reflect the University’s capabilities, focus and outcomes, and align closely with the priorities and needs of industries, government agencies and communities in our regions.
