To be a multidisciplinary groundwater research centre of national and international standing, which continually advances knowledge and management of national and international groundwater resources.

Our mission

As the UNSW groundwater research centre, the mission of the Connected Waters Initiative Research Centre is to undertake the fundamental and applied research needed to improve our understanding of groundwater systems both nationally and internationally.

Within Australia, our mission is to continue to manage the national groundwater infrastructure program, the Groundwater EIF.
