Impact

We apply our research to important social and cultural challenges, to generate change in healthcare, education, publishing, policing, sport, the arts, entertainment and social justice.

Current and past impact projects include developing critical skills in schools, supporting teenagers, changing the way the police interact with detainees, victims and the public, and bringing illustrations of Victorian life to multiple users.
