Our mission

Australia has many unique qualities when it comes to developing new and exciting energy technologies and decarbonising our economies and societies.

At Swinburne we are committed to energy transition through our future-focused research, which links science, technology, and innovation, to humanity. This allows us to deliver renewable, sustainable, and efficient solutions– enabling a brighter future for all. We have a university-wide research program that partners with leading multinational industries to more sustainably source the materials for this future with a focus on Energy Transition Metals and Supply Chain Decarbonisation.

Through our deep partnerships with academia, industry and government, Swinburne aspires to be a global leader in advancing energy transition and sustainable industries. We also believe in leading by example, though our own Net Zero 2025 Pathway commitment.
