We aim to be a flexible and agile partner for stakeholders from government, private enterprise, and the not-for-profit sector. There are a range of ways to partner with us including commissioned research, consultancy services, custom training and industry-sponsored student internships. We also partner to secure new grant funding for big ideas.

The following are some of the ways we could work with you:

  • Boardroom Brainstorms: Using an open innovation approach, we encourage discussions that generate new questions and ideas with research end-users in industry and government.
  • Research Roundtables: We filter, iterate and test questions and ideas with subject matter specialists and methodologists to prototype research solutions.
  • Interdisciplinary Expertise: We access subject matter specialists from the Business, Economics and Law Faculty and across UQ to expedite our work and achieve interdisciplinarity and impact.
  • Research Sprints: We offer industry the opportunity to sponsor rapid research on contemporary sector challenges.
  • Commissioned Research and Consultancy Services: We provide custom professional services for government and industry clients.
  • Fundamental Research: We pursue high quality academic research aimed at expanding knowledge in business and economics for a better world.
