Partner with us
We are working to forge strong industry partnerships that are global, multi-disciplinary and co-operative; partnerships that bring researchers, students, governments, industry, alumni and communities together for mutual benefit.
By connecting industry partners with our researchers and students we are addressing some of industry’s key challenges and converting knowledge to benefit local and international communities.
Our partnerships span a wide range of sectors and have a strong entrepreneurial focus. We are working to establish partnerships that leverage La Trobe’s capability and expertise and connect these activities with industry and end-users to create value.
