Institutes and Centres
Our faculty is one of the key stakeholders in UoW's new Simulation, Modelling and Analysis for Research and Teaching (SMART) Infrastructure Facility, one of UoW's Strategic Research Priority Areas. This facility is an integrated collection of laboratories designed to facilitate multi-disciplinary research and teaching activities with a focus on infrastructure technology. By bringing together a diverse range of research groups in the one building, the SMART Infrastructure Facility creates an exciting new opportunity for collaboration.
ICTR is on e of the longest running university based research institutes in the field of ICT in Australia and is recognized as a Centre of Excellence in Telecommunications by the New South wales State Government. The ICT Research Institute has significant research capacity in the area of communication and wireless technology, multimedia and information processing, computer and information security and intelligent systems.

One of the principal ways in which the Faculty of Informatics engages with industry is via various Co-operative Research Centres (CRCs). CRCs in which Informatics participates include: The SMART Services CRC, (commenced in 2008), a partnership of media, telecommunications and financial companies, government departments, and Universities which supports research projects in intelligent servicing of customer needs, ecosystems for service delivery and services for the future; The Desert Knowledge CRC, which aims to improve economic and social outcomes for indigenous people in remote communities through research and development of technologies with commercial application in the desert environment; and The Smart Internet Technology CRC (concluded in 2007), which aimed to perform world-class research and development of next-generation Internet technologies and applications. UoW's participation in this CRC successfully spawned a number of spin-off companies such as Spatial Voice (now part of Dolby).
