  • build and strengthen world-class research capability in Australia
  • provide an excellent research training environment and exemplary mentorship to nurture early-career researchers
  • expand Australia?s knowledge base
  • forge strong links between researchers, industry and the international research community
  • support research that will result in economic, environmental, social and cultural benefits for Australia.
