Abstract

The University of Canberra (UC) is ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world (THE) and in the top 10 universities in Australia. UC’s Collaborative Indigenous Research Initiative (CIRI) is a network of researchers committed to Indigenous research. CIRI works with existing UC Research Centers and Faculties to promote, connect and enhance the UC’s Indigenous research interests. CIRI fosters local, national and international partnerships. With funding from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Portfolio, CIRI provides seed funding under an Indigenous research grant scheme for projects that generate outcomes with tangible benefits for Indigenous communities and financial support for Indigenous post graduate scholars. CIRI is continuously exploring collaborative projects nationally and internationally.
The Faculty of Health educates highly regarded graduates and conducts high quality research in a broad range of health professions. Our two research institutes - the Health Research Institute and the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise – enable us to integrate research, education, practice and policy. Inter-professional and work-integrated learning mirrors current trends in health and encourages different disciplines to work together, particularly in areas of emerging importance such as primary care, prevention, mental health and chronic disease. The Faculty of Health is particularly interested in attracting and graduating Indigenous students at all levels and conducting health research with Indigenous peoples and communities.
In this presentation, we are offering an overview of CIRI and the Faculty of Health to create potential pathways for collaborative research as well as student and academic exchange. We are especially interested in collaboration and exchange with Indigenous peoples in Taiwan and Australia to strengthen Indigenous peoples and build Indigenous research capacities in both countries.
