Strategic Research Framework: 2015-2024
This Framework, designed to guide Macquarie University’s research trajectory over the decade 2015 – 2024, is the result of deep consultation, intensive work and strategic thinking by key stakeholders across the University
50 Years: World-leading research; World-changing impact
The 50 research stories chosen for this volume cover many fields of endeavour, and their impacts range from small and local to global and revolutionary. Some set out to solve a specific challenge of practical import to the world while others investigate something simply to answer a question. All were driven by curiosity, to expand knowledge and with a desire to make a difference.
