The University’s commitment to research and innovation has been recognised in Thomson Reuters’ new ranking of the most innovative universities in the Asia-Pacific. Melbourne came in at 34.

The list ranks universities doing the most to advance science, invent new technologies and help drive the global economy.

Professor Julie Willis, Pro Vice Chancellor (Research Capability), said the award provided important recognition of the University’s efforts to be an institution that is at the leading edge of research that has influence and impact.

“Part of that commitment includes the Carlton Connect Initiative and the Melbourne Accelerator Program, both hubs of innovation where disciplines and industries converge to create innovative solutions. 

“Our renewed emphasis on enterprise and industry engagement will further support these efforts in the coming years.”
