Getting Started

Welcome to Research @ ECU

ECU conducts world-class research that makes a difference, focusing on people, partnerships and results. Our research transcends medical practice, driving health outcomes and quality of life. It leverages our unique geographical location, tying the natural environment to the built. It’s also at the forefront of shaping our digital future, addressing the challenges of the digital revolution. And it shapes the culturally-rich society we live in today, informing and protecting communities.

For further information see the ECU World-Class Research website.

Research Integrity

Integrity is one of ECU’s core values - being ethical, honest and fair. Integrity is also a key component of world-class research. In Australia, all researchers are required to comply with The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (the Code). The Code sets out the principles that characterise an honest, ethical and conscientious research culture that facilitates high quality research.

For further information see the Research Integrity web page.

Researcher Professional Development

The Researcher Professional Development Framework (RPDF) will help you target some short-and longer-term development or training that will help you to build your skills and competencies as a world-class researcher.

ECU’s Research Orientation event ‘You, Your Research and ECU’ will take place in Semester 2 2020 Mid-Semester break.
