UCL Australia applies a systems approach to energy and natural resources research across a variety of sectors and disciplines (technology, natural and social sciences, economics, law) with particular focus on:

  • Systems modelling (process optimisation, project organisation and management);
  • Impact assessment (environment, society, economy);
  • Decision support (governance, business models);
  • Policy analysis and assessment (energy security, climate change, regional and national priorities); and
  • Innovation opportunities and impacts (disruptive technologies, open and social innovation, incentives and barriers)


Following an agreement signed in 2015 between The University of South Australia and UCL’s Faculty of Engineering Sciences both institutions are to develop teaching and research in South Australia in fields that include:

  • Minerals processing
  • Advanced manufacturing
  • Sustainable future energy production and protection
  • Care of the environment


The teaching and research will take place in Australia under the Future Industries Institute (FII).
