UTS eResearch

What is eResearch? 

eResearch refers to the application of Information Technology to research practice, projects and collaborations. The UTS eResearch Group works with UTS researchers to help them with aspects of their research that can be facilitated by information technology, freeing them to do the knowledge creation work that technology cannot.  Discover and explore UTS eResearch
