CSU works in partnership with industry, business, government and not-for-profit organisations to answer research questions and where possible seek to translate research innovations into new products, including through licensing or collaborative development.

Successful collaborations are built from understanding end-user requirements, the environment and commercial imperatives and by focusing on outcomes.  Research partnerships with CSU can provide access to discipline expertise, key networks, resources and facilities.
