Research projects

RMIT Europe collaborates with research and industry partners from across Europe on projects funded by the European Union, and national and local governments.

Why partner with us?

An international dimension beyond Europe's borders, especially in Asia thanks to our established presence in this region.

Experience coordinating the inclusion of non-European public entities in a project, such as cities or public agencies in Australia, Vietnam, China and Singapore.

Non-European perspectives and methodologies such as our unique model of doctoral degree for practicing architects and designers.

RMIT has received the 'HR Excellence in Research' award, which is a recognition from the European Commission for institutions that maintain an environment of excellence for researchers and a commitment to providing a supportive, world-class research environment.
