Speaking with The Australian, Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Annamarie Jagose said the University’s reputation meant it succeeded in attracting outstanding, high-performing academics who are passionate about their research.

“That halo effect means they build fantastically motivated teams who attract other excellent colleagues … and you start getting a kind of a research concentration, almost a research ecosystem, that grows over time.”

She said the University of Sydney was differentiated by its long-term investment in multidisciplinary initiatives including the Charles Perkins Centre, Sydney Nano and the Brain and Mind Centre and had stepped up investment in medical research with the new Sydney Biomedical Accelerator. Elsewhere, the Sydney Environment Institute is tackling some of the biggest challenges of our time and the University is also preparing for a key role in defence research.
