2:00 PM CASE STUDY: The NUW Alliance: Creating New Collaborative Connections to Help Transform Research and Education Outcomes
The NUW Alliance comprises three of Australia’s leading research-intensive universities – the University of Newcastle, UNSW Sydney and the University of Wollongong. Formed to combine the strengths of three of Australia’s most prestigious universities, the Alliance provides a new and unique model for advancing collaboration of networked engagement beyond the capacity of any other domestic research partnership. Covering NSW’s Sandstone Megaregion – a geographic area home to more than 75 per cent of the State’s population and 25 per cent of Australia’s - the NUW Alliance is focused on leveraging its critical mass to deliver opportunity and impact beyond the reach of individual institutions.
In this session:
- Understanding how partnerships are shaping the delivery of new education and research
- Developing models of delivery to prepare today’s graduates for the workforce
- Working with partners to deliver education and research at the Western Sydney Aerotropolis
