Melbourne’s west faces a number of challenges in adapting to rapid population growth and a transitioning economy, and Victoria University is uniquely placed to meet those challenges through our Sustainable Industries and Liveable Cities theme.Through our two key interdisciplinary themes, Health, Sport and Active Living and Sustainable Industries and Liveable Cities, we are undertaking high-quality and innovative applied and translational research in areas of critical importance to the contemporary world, in particular the West of Melbourne.
