Working together for impact

Fang Chen: Because we’re young and vibrant, we probably have less rigid processes or thinking patterns to say we have to follow x, y and z. But we say we solved it by getting it done.

Ramona Vijeyarasa: So we don’t get bogged down in the books and the cases and the journal articles, but we take those ideas off the pages and we try to make sure that those messages have real world impact and bring about social change.

Peter Ralph: We don’t work in silos. At UTS, we’re able to move between different disciplines and find the really exciting gold and exploit that for industry and government’s purposes.

Ramona Vijeyarasa: At UTS when people are open-minded to work outside their own discipline, that’s when collaboration is at its best.

Fang Chen: UTS is focussed very much on industry partnerships because those are the avenues for us to deliver impact to the society.

Peter Ralph: Some of the characteristics of research at UTS is our ability to be agile. We can adapt and change and we work really closely with industry. By working with industry it allows us to actually transform society and have great impact.
