Victoria University focuses on mission-oriented research that is relevant to the needs of society. The University has identified a number of strategic areas where our research strengths match the needs and interests of existing and potential external stakeholders.

Within the Strategic Research Areas, activities are co-ordinated through structures including Key Research Areas (KRAs), Research Centres, units, institutes and groups that contribute to the University and wider community. Most of the research is organised through a multi-tier system, with the University's KRAs at the broadest level. These KRAs are cross-disciplinary and co-exist with the network of Research Centres that represents nodes of research expertise within the University.

The Centre for Hospitality and Tourism Research aims to combine the best of academic research with solutions to practical problems of enduring value to industry and government. Some particular areas of research include the use of marketing research by management, and the management of hospitality and tourism enterprises. Technological developments in tourism is also an area of expertise, and the Centre is an acknowledged leader in the detailed analysis of large databases, with several researchers examining some of Australia’s major tourism databases in co-operation with their owners.
