UQ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research and Innovation Strategy

The UQ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research and Innovation Strategy was developed in 2020, with broad input from across the UQ community. The Strategy sets a framework for UQ to excel as a national and international leader in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research and innovation and to support career progression for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers. 

The Strategy sets out a vision for UQ to leverage research as a tool of empowerment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations. We will achieve this through nurturing a respectful and supportive University environment alongside a broad and robust program of research and innovation.

UQ staff leading action items relating to the Strategy have access to an Implementation Guide, to assist with progress and reporting on the strategy Action Plan. In Q2 2022 we will launch an online Community of Practice for ongoing collaboration among UQ staff on Strategy implementation.

In March 2022, the first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research and Innovation Strategy Annual Report was published, and provides details on organisation-wide achievements in 2021, including updates on investment, activities, and appointments.
