To keep pace in the dynamic global higher education environment, and to meet the demands of the University community, UQ must continue to provide state-of-the-art collaborative spaces.

UQ's learning spaces must be supported by cutting-edge information and communication technology that will enable further development of UQ’s intellectual capital.

Information Technology will work on the following initiatives to achieve this goal:

  • Provide a modern information management approach.
  • Actively engage in and contribute to University decisions.
  • Identify, trial, adopt and support new technologies that improve the student experience, teaching practices and research outcomes.
  • Empower and strengthen UQ’s ability to collaborate and communicate using social networks, virtual communities and other digital tools.
  • Provide solutions for storing research data.
  • Develop staff expertise in eResearch technologies.
  • Help transform the systems and processes within the Discovery Portfolio to electronic online solutions with appropriate workflows.
  • Create improved awareness of and access to significant software and computer resources.
  • Optimise high performance computer access for existing and future devices.
  • Enhance training for researchers.
  • Extend the network capabilities to extreme speeds to allow larger quantities of data to flow seamlessly.
