Launch of the NUW Alliance
The NUW Alliance was officially launched in Sydney on 14 July 2017 by the Premier of NSW, The Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP
Three of Australia’s leading research-intensive universities have formed a new alliance to harness shared experience, global reach and excellence in innovation, and to create new knowledge, grow new jobs, build new businesses, and deliver the leaders of tomorrow for the workforce of the future.
The NUW Alliance, a commitment by the University of Newcastle (UON), the University of New South Wales (UNSW), and the University of Wollongong (UOW), aims to explore some of the short and long term challenges impacting NSW to generate benefits for the State as well as the Australian economy.
With a geographical reach from the Mid North Coast to the South Coast – home to 25% of Australia’s population - this collaboration is the first grouping of its kind in Australia and is modelled on similar regionally-based research alliances in the United Kingdom and USA.
