“We are incredibly excited to announce details of the new strategic partnership with The University of Queensland. We share a wealth of common research interests, which address some of the major challenges facing the world’s population, and this collaboration will help us meet these challenges head-on through truly world-leading research. Together, I believe we can nurture a pioneering approach to cross-continental research that is centred on ideas, skills and – perhaps most importantly – people, to stimulate new philosophies, policies and studies that will have a global impact.”

About the partnership

The University of Exeter and The University of Queensland have partnered to establish the QUEX Institute, a new multi-million pound partnership designed to bolster their joint global research impact.

The partnership will strengthen a joint commitment to co-produce research of the highest quality, boost industry and business collaboration, and publish high-level policy reports designed to inform and shape key government initiatives across the globe.

Working under the overarching banner of ‘Global Sustainability and Wellbeing’, the QUEX Institute will focus on the crucial interdisciplinary themes of:

  • environmental sustainability
  • healthy ageing
  • physical activity and nutrition

Operating as a virtual institute, the QUEX Institute will also promote opportunities for academics to conduct collaborative research at both universities, facilitated through specified and targeted investment.

The high-level collaboration will bring together the University of Exeter’s global-leading expertise in health, disease and dementia research from both its Medical School and flagship Living Systems Institute, as well as its pioneering environmental research carried out at the Environment and Sustainability Institute, with the University of Queensland’s world-leading reputation in health and genetic, environmental, and mental health research.

Together, I believe we can nurture a pioneering approach to cross-continental research that is centred on ideas, skills and – perhaps most importantly – people, to stimulate new philosophies, policies and studies that will have a global impact.
