Deakin University aims to be at the forefront of change in Australia. Our innovative, globally-connected education and research are focussed on achieving positive economic and societal outcomes. This is enabled through partnerships with industry, government and community that draw on the expert capabilities within the University’s many Faculties, Institutes and Centres, and partnered research institutions (local and international).
The Strategic Partnerships team supports Deakin University’s external and internal stakeholders to achieve win-win collaborative outcomes. Local and international partnerships, and sector-specific strategic initiatives have seen the ongoing development of the Geelong Economic Futures Precinct, ManuFutures, and the Deakin Energy initiative (including the 7.25MW microgrid) – just some of the world-class activities taking place in partnership with the University.
