Research Programs aligned to SDGs

At CQUniversity, we actively engage and collaborate with various stakeholders, including government and non-governmental organisations, on research programs and projects that address the themes of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

These research programs help us to produce new knowledge and global leaders who deliver innovative, solutions-focused outcomes and drive change to address real-world challenges.
