Government & Business
By preparing the next generation of professional leaders and innovators, discovering new knowledge and building relationships nationally and internationally, Go8 universities contribute to advancing Australia's wellbeing and solving the major challenges confronting the world.
While world class research and innovative activities are an every day occurrence in Australia's universities bringing significant benefits to industry, business, government and the wider community, it can often be difficult to identify, locate and access specific expertise within the sector. To assist in this regard the Go8 is developing a database which quickly and accurately locates detailed information about research strengths in all Australian universities.
Doing Business with the Group of Eight
The Group of Eight universities understand that connecting with business and government is a vital element in their efforts to advance Australia's wellbeing. Committees of senior staff within Group of Eight universities work collaboratively on a range of issues including research and research commercialisation.
Policy and Analysis
The Go8 aims to be:
- an authoritative source of policy advice & analysis on higher education & university research
- proactive in setting the policy agenda
- responsive to changes in the policy environment
Benchmarking and Statistics
The Go8 is currently expanding its capability to collect and analyse statistical data. Results of that work will be released through this page, as well as in information papers including Go8 Backgrounders.
