High-impact research through state-of-the-art infrastructure
Pursuing research excellence requires the latest innovative technology across all disciplines. This is why we're continually investing in world-class and openly-accessible core research facilities.

The University of Sydney’s core research facilities provide staff and students from the University and our partners around the world access to high-end research infrastructure and a range of related services to assist with specialist applications. 

Our research facilities bring together world-class instrumentation, outstanding people and excellent user-focused processes. They are intimately linked to our search for solutions to the most significant contemporary challenges in climate, health, food, water, energy, communications, transport, manufacturing, construction and national security.
