The Centre for Transformative Research (CTR) is an interdisciplinary research hub at IIE MSA that was established in October 2015. It is a subcommittee of the campus-wide Research and Development Committee and works closely with the Faculty Research Committees. The aim of the CTR is to promote collaborative, innovative and impactful research in the five strategic IIE MSA focus areas of innovation and technology, broadening the economic base, health and wellbeing, competent state, education, the environment and sustainability. Research conducted within the Centre distinguishes it as a centre of excellence producing thought leaders and an expert voice in policy-making, within the five focus areas.
