RMIT University's research and development concentrates on two related areas of activity - managing and fostering research and encouraging innovation and its practical application, particularly to the benefit of the Australian community.

The University's research is involved with industry and community concerns and its main focus is on research programs which have real-world outcomes, and seeks to expand its capabilities through the use of multi-disciplinary approaches to problem-solving and the building of strong relationships with industry, government, commerce and the wider community.
