Our researchers focus on creating positive impact in an ecosystem that supports the highest ethical standards and integrity. We apply national and internal codes of conduct to our work as commitment to ethical research, conducted with integrity.
Research ethics refers to ethical conduct in research, as well as the protection of research participants. Ethics approval is required for all research involving people, personal data, and human tissue, as well as research involving animals. Find out more about the ethics approval process, and how we support our researchers and students in conducting research to the highest ethical standards.
Research integrity refers to adherence with a set of principles that underpin responsible conduct in research. Our research integrity framework provides a foundation for research that is accurate, honest and transparent, and ensures community trust in our research.

We regularly partner with universities, governments and private industry outside of Australia to meet our research objectives. In doing so, we comply with the Defence Trade Controls Act (2012) to ensure that we protect Australia's national interests without limiting our research.
