STCRC diffuses its research outputs to industry through:

  • Collaboration with industry and government partners
  • Spin-off enterprises
  • Licensing its intellectual property
  • Business tools, kits, manuals and expert systems
  • Conferences, workshops, seminars
  • Published reports, summary sheets and extension flyers
  • Internet-based information services
  • Training products, courses and programs
  • International consulting services.


We are developing Australia’s long-term tourism research capacities through a vigorous postgraduate research education program, supported by scholarships for students in industry-designed projects, and by developing and distributing education and training products.
