Global Change Institute

 
The Global Change Institute draws together research excellence and expertise from across UQ, industry, government and the community
to address grand challenges which deliver impact to society, the economy, the environment, and culture.
We face a global challenge to feed two billion more people without incurring an environmental impact. Aquaculture is the fastest growing food production sector globally.
Climate change, natural disasters and the pandemic all reinforce the need to pivot the Agrifood sector in a changing landscape. Protected cropping uses controlled facilities for growing plants, regardless of external conditions and climatic extremes.
Traditional models of healthcare delivery are no longer sustainable. Digital technologies are an opportunity to respond to this problem by enabling digital health data driven improvements in health care and management.
Technology and digital transformation are altering how and where we work; promoting hybrid work, teleworking, involuntary working from home, and blurring boundaries between home and office.
