We have enhanced the role for Research Hubs and established a state-wide Hub Council. The Hub Council drives projects which foster translation, innovation and research capacity across NSW.
Our Hub Strategy places a strong emphasis on the role of Research Hubs in promoting collaboration. Hubs coordinate the efforts of geographically proximate medical research institutes, local health districts and primary care providers, universities, industry and philanthropic organisations.
The results of Hub collaboration were recently recognised when Sydney Health Partners were acknowledged as an Advanced Health Research Translational Centre. The Hunter and Sydney Alliance for Healthcare, Research and Training were also highly commended for their collaborative, translation focus.
Through the Hub Council and strategy, we are bringing together health and medical research expertise in NSW. This will make NSW more competitive nationally and internationally; and ensure the research sector is effective in delivering health benefits to our community.
