At UOW, we believe in thinking globally, acting locally. We know that tackling challenges in our own backyard is the first step towards solving the greater, global issues of the 21st century. Our Global Challenges Research Program brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines to work together on three of Australia’s biggest challenges: managing an ageing population, coping with industrial transformation and sustaining coastal environments. By harnessing the expertise of existing as well as emerging UOW research strengths, we are rethinking our past to redesign our future.
