- extend and strengthen collaborative relationships with researchers in Australia and overseas, bringing distinguished and stimulating visitors to Adelaide and generally through ongoing interaction, fostering synergies that will increase the Centre's scholarly output
- attract postgraduate research students of the highest potential
- increase and diversify the financial support for the Centre's research including necessary infrastructure
ARCPOH's stakeholders, in addition to the University, include government agencies, dental organisations, and private corporations.
