Industry partnerships

Why partner with us

Our industry partnerships produce ground-breaking research and innovations that solve complex problems, drives economic growth, and create a  skilled workforce. When universities and industry combine their technical skills, knowledge, and resources they can tackle the most complex challenges in society. Experts and students from across HASS are available to work with you.

 Industry experiences and placements 

HASS students offer unique insights to many workplaces. HASS students have a strong track record of contributing: 

  • insights into community issues and challenges; 
  • new ideas for start-ups or social enterprises; 
  • support for research projects; and 
  • policy advice.  

Add unique insights to your organisation; consider offering an industry placement or scholarship to HASS students.
