Research Priority Area. The majority of Deakin's research has been concentrated into ten research priority areas. These areas were selected on the basis of being nationally or internationally competitive with regard to research income, research output, research training and collaborations with outside organisations. The benefits of a critical mass of researchers in each area include better research from the stimulation of working in a large group of cognate researchers, an excellent environment for research training and the better utilisation of infrastructure.
