Innovation, Methodology and Application

We drive and facilitate cutting edge research and education across the Faculty. We connect the most appropriate technologies and methodologies to the right research questions. Illustrating our collective team science approach.

Our theme provides a unique environment for the creation of technologies and methodologies. As well as developing the professionals who specialise in them.

The IMA theme drives all aspects of scientific endeavour in the generation of new methods, and technologies. We improve commercialisation by connecting researchers with our experienced business development managers. We aim to catalyse cross faculty working and collaborations with external partners.
