Overview

ECU’s Office of Research and Innovation plays a key role in building the university’s research profile.

The Office provides services to support and encourage our research community, including administration of external and internal research funding schemes, data collection, management and reporting, exploring commercialisation opportunities, industry liaison and promotion of research achievements.

Research journey

The research journey web pages will guide you through the six stages of a typical research project – from looking for funding opportunities, to publishing your work.

The stages are:

  • Getting started;
  • Sourcing funding;
  • Completing pre-research award tasks;
  • Managing your research award;
  • Completing your project; and
  • Knowledge transfer.
