We see potential at Deakin for collaborating in areas such as climate change forecasting, developing more water tolerant and drought resistant seeds, and working on smart polymers to improve water use.

Partners for successful research outcomes
Industry plays a significant role in helping to inform our research activity and project-based learning. We strive to integrate global and commercial challenges into our research and problem-solving cases. Study with us and you'll have the opportunity to work with high-visibility industry partners, both here in Australia and abroad.
It is a key strength of CeRRF that we are able to draw on all research areas at Deakin. Deakin’s expertise in policy, social sciences, regional planning or economics, for instance, are as valuable as science and engineering, if we are to support the transformation of rural and regional Australia.
