The University of Western Australia has proven once again in 2017 that our research and researchers are relevant, impactful, successful and world-leading. UWA has improved its position across all five monitored international rankings, with a top 100 place in the QS (93), USN&W (88) and ARWU (91).
Our researchers have won dozens of state, national, and international awards this year, including the Scientist of the Year at the 2017 Premier’s Science Awards. UWA research continues to strive to achieve the world best in all areas, and to use our strengths for the engagement and betterment of the world.
In its 4th year, UWA Research Week hosted more than 5000 visitors and participants at 60 free events across campus. Our community now have a greater appreciation of the huge body of work taking place at UWA, and the value and impact of the research we do.
The timeline below illustrates and recognises some of the UWA Research highlights of 2017. We look forward to another year of success in 2018.
