CBE launches Research Themes

17 March 2016

The ANU College of Business and Economics is pleased to announce the launch of its four Research Themes, which capture the research priorities and focus of the College.

The themes were developed through an extensive collaborative process with academic staff and industry partners, under the leadership of Professor Shirley Gregor, our Associate Dean of Research.

Speaking at the launch event, Dean of the College of Business and Economics, Professor Shirley Leitch said the themes captured and communicated the impact of our research.

“In June 2014, we recognised the importance of developing a set of strategic research themes which would position the College to better support national priorities. There is a growing international movement towards greater engagement between academic researchers and industry.”

“In Australia, there is also a growing expectation that universities will better communicate the value of the research we undertake and increase the translation of that research investment into, for example, improved GDP or solutions to major social and economic problems.”

“Professor Shirley Gregor and her team coordinated workshops and forums with academics, industry and government agencies. This highly collaborative process resulted in four key research themes: Foundations, Strong Organisations, Transformative Innovation, and Wealth and Well-being.”

Deputy Vice-Chancellor of ANU, Professor Margaret Harding, said it is exciting to see the College’s Research Themes project come to fruition.

“This university is founded on high quality research, twinned with external engagement. Connecting that research to industry is essential. The College’s Research Themes will help promote and connect your research with the external world,” she said.
