Society & Economy
University of Adelaide researchers have a proven ability to work across faculty boundaries to address multi-disciplinary problems in areas critical to advancing communities, including water, health and security as well as social innovation and economic development.
Led by the faculties of the Professions and Arts, the University offers significant experience and expertise in documenting, clarifying, shaping and enriching thought and behaviour. Our research outcomes influence policy and planning, and explore the ways in which those outcomes affect people locally, nationally and globally.
We also have significant research expertise in evolutionary biology, population genetic studies of animals, plants, pathogens, as well as human evolution and migration.
