East Asia Research
East Asia Research (EAR) is established in Singapore with the mission of enhancing productivity and reducing poverty in Asia. EAR strives to make continuous efforts in transforming the lives of people in Asia through education, application of research and innovative ideas. This will be achieved through the dissemination of knowledge from the Asia focused research Conferences and Publications by EAR. EAR academic conferences are world-class events which provide a meaningful platform for researchers, students, academicians, institutions, entrepreneurs, industries and practitioners to create, share and disseminate knowledge and innovation and to develop long-lasting network and collaboration.


Ours is a university deeply engaged with, and informed by, Australia’s Indigenous people. Recognising that we operate on the lands of many strong Indigenous nations, respecting the knowledges and culture of Aboriginal people and committed to Indigenous advancement.

These are truly unique features that CDU embraces as both challenges and opportunities for the years ahead, building on the strong foundations and remarkable achievements of our 25-year history.

In this relatively short space of time we have developed a reputation as one of the most innovative teaching and learning and most research intensive universities in Australia and have risen to the ranks of the top 2 per cent of world universities in 2015.

CDU has provided, and will continue to provide, the human capital that underpins the future prosperity of Northern Australia and our near Asian region, while also providing innovative and flexible online learning choices for a broader national student market.
