The University of Tasmania has research and teaching partnerships throughout the world offering off-shore academic programs in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, China and Korea and collaborating on a diverse range of international research projects including:

  • breeding eucalypts in Portugal;
  • measuring global warming via radio astronomy with NASA;
  • exploring mineral resources throughout Africa and other regions;
  • investigating spinal chord regeneration and diabetes with the United States and cardiovascular disease with the World Health Organisation; and
  • developing agriculture and aquaculture techniques throughout Asia.

The University and the Tasmanian Government have established a comprehensive partnership agreement, the first such agreement between a university and its State government. Underlying the partnership agreement is the recognition of the University’s importance to the State and its future development. Successes in the first year of operation in 2001 included establishing a State Law Reform Institute (and moving towards creating additional institutes in health and the environment), developing the State’s IT capabilities and establishing new academic programs to meet Tasmania’s skill needs.

The University of Tasmania also has partnerships in the:
  • National Cooperative Research Centres (Aquafin, Sustainable Production Forestry, Antarctica and the Southern Ocean Environment, Sustainable Tourism and Smart Internet Technology);
  • Tasmanian Institute of Agricultural Research;
  • Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute; and
  • Tasmanian Electronic Commerce Centre.

An Australian Research Council Special Research Centre (the Centre for Ore Deposit and Exploration Studies) is located in Hobart.
