Developing Port Growth

University of Queensland and Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd Research Partnership

The Developing Port Growth partnership between the Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd and The University of Queensland, connects Queensland’s premier multi-cargo port with one of Australia’s leading research and teaching institutions.

The partnership will provide $2 million support over three years to improve Queensland's research and development of port-related technology. This will future proof the Port of Brisbane as Queensland’s foremost economic engine, and allow students to work in a world-class port facility, exposing them to the challenges faced both regionally and globally.

The Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology together with the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law have developed a comprehensive research program, which provides opportunities for post-doctoral researchers as well as postgraduate and undergraduate students.
