The Digital Capability Research Platform has been established to research and develop digital technologies and translate these into real-world applications.

The platform has a wealth of strategic capabilities across our six labs:

  • Advanced Visualisation Lab
  • Cybersecurity Lab
  • Intelligent Data Analytics Lab
  • The Internet of Things Lab
  • Software Systems Lab
  • Blockchain Innovation Lab

The synthesis of high-level digital research capability across the university, underpins the activities being undertaken by the Research Institutes and Centres.

  • “Swinburne’s Digital Capability Research Platform develops and utilizes digital research technologies that push above and beyond traditional business and industry boundaries. We aim to be an international leader in digital research technology solutions with a strong focus on global partnerships that have strong social and economic impact.”
