The centre aims to raise the profile of Bond University in the Big Data Analytics research space. This will help establish meaningful engagement with organisations, both government and private, which are expected to lead to funding opportunities and joint research collaborations.
Potential funding opportunities and projects will in turn help grow the research centre by growing the PhD program, and facilitating a greater level of external collaboration.
