Our research centres reflect our core strengths and underpin the partnerships that translate our research into real-world applications. QUT researchers work on projects in all corners of the globe, and beyond, collaborating on drones in Antarctica, disease-resistant crops in Uganda, autonomous vehicles in France and even on Mars Rovers with NASA.
