How we work

Meeting the grand challenge of sustaining water for people and ecosystem requires an integrated, interdisciplinary research response.

This challenge cannot be solved by natural scientists, engineers or social scientists working in isolation. We build on existing research excellence from across the University to address complex water issues in a truly interdisciplinary manner.



Bringing together groups of researchers to explore a range of interdisciplinary water themes.
