Charles Darwin University Research

Darwin, Northern Territory

Making a world of difference through research


Located in the north of Australia, research is central to the purpose of Charles Darwin University, and closely tied to the needs of the Northern Territory and the Territory’s Asian and Pacific neighbours.


New world research


CDU is positioned to develop additional world-class fields of research and scholarships to meet the emerging requirements of Northern and Central Australia and our immediate region. We will continue to build on already successful national and international research partnerships, including with research end users, to ensure our research continues to be relevant and has a strong positive impact on the communities we serve.
