In addition to our centres and institutes we have several research networks, labs and clusters within our schools which advance knowledge and advocacy across a diverse range of thematic areas.
The Critique Network, in the School of Humanities and Languages, brings together academics and students working in critical theorizing and its applications across multiple disciplines.
The Forced Migration Research Network advances debate and knowledge translation on the multifaceted nature of human mobility and displacement.
The Gendered Violence Research Network unites the significant domestic and international research expertise of UNSW to respond, prevent and end gendered violence in Australia and beyond.
The network represents UNSW academics who research the complex relationship between globalisation and governance.
The High-Performance Architecture Research Cluster aims to deliver research innovation in design, planning and management of high-performance buildings and cities.
The History and Theory of the Built Environment Research Cluster focuses on history and theory of architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, interior architecture, industrial design.
The Laureate Centre for History & Population asks how, where and why population policies emerged over the 19th and 20th centuries, and what their present legacies are, especially in the Asia-Pacific region.
Media Futures Hub is a collection of scholars at UNSW researching justice, media, and emerging technologies.
New Earth Histories brings the history of geosciences and the history of select world cosmologies together.
The People and Place research cluster focuses on understanding the relationship between people and their environments, with 'place' being defined as broad as region and as small as a room.
Silk Roads is a program of interdisciplinary projects exploring the ancient and contemporary human connections and material exchanges across Eurasia and the seas.
The Smart Cities and Infrastructure Cluster (SCIC) seeks to promote and advance the efficient design, planning and delivery of urban environments, infrastructure, and properties using spatially integrated information and smart technologies.
The City Analytics Lab (CAL) is a dedicated space designed to support collaborative city planning and user centred design.
The Creative Robotics Lab provides a structured environment that facilitates the creation of experimental interfaces that promote interactivity in physical spaces.
UNSW's EPICentre makes decades of accumulated historic and massive new data visually accessible. Innovative computing, 3-D immersive and screen-based technologies renders this data visible and enables scientists 'to get inside' and be immersed in some of most challenging and complex medical and health problems.
3D Visualisation Aesthetics Laboratory is an award-winning multi-disciplinary research lab that specialises in 3D computer graphics. Our research explores the application of creative practice, technical innovation and immersive platforms to new data visualisation challenges.
EBEP’s research is concerned with how the built environment, from home to town centre design level, impacts human function, quality of life and healthcare costs for older people, young people with disability, and carers.
GRID develops voxel-based data analysis and modelling solutions supporting different sources of point clouds and vector data from GIS and BIM: lines (cables and pipes, above and underground), surfaces, solids (buildings) and volumes (air, water, soil, rock), elongated structures (levees, dams, ducts, tunnels).
Home Modification Information Clearinghouse (HMInfo) mission is to disseminate evidence-based home modification knowledge to enhance the independence and wellbeing of older people and younger people with disability, provide safe working environments for their carers and care workers.
