UWA Oceans Institute

Our vision is to be the leading global oceans research and training centre focused on the Indian Ocean and so it is fitting that in its 2030 Vision and Strategy, UWA has named oceans and the marine environment as one of its seven 'Grand Challenges'. It means we will continue to pursue large projects that utilise the full breadth of our interdisciplinary skills, working in collaboration with industry, government and community partners.Professor Peter Veth - Director, UWA Oceans Institute
