The research framework incorporates two separate but linked activities:
Research conducted by universities and TAFEs drives our global economy, advances in our standard of living and helps us understand the world around us. Integrating sustainability into our research methods can have a huge impact on the behaviours of researchers and ultimately produce more innovative research outputs and outcomes.
For research-intensive institutions, the integration of sustainable research and research into sustainability demonstrates a commitment to new ways of thinking and more sustainable ways to achieve new breakthroughs.
This framework was benchmarked on 27 October 2016. This graph shows our progress toward best practice across the eight activity areas for this framework.
The below graph illustrates our progress towards best practice across the eight (8) activity areas. The orange bars reaching four (4) highlight best practice and the lower bars in blue indicate CSU's current baseline ratings. An absence of a blue bar indicates 'no progress' for this activity area.
A 2017 Research grant, partly funded by CSU Green "Ngiyanggarang" -Beginning a conversation in the morning to awaken others celebrates and documents stories of resilience and persistence from Wiradjuri Elders describing strength, living a good life and connecting to family and country.
