RMIT University (officially the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), is a public research university in Melbourne, Australia. It is a global university with campuses in Australia, Vietnam and Spain. It offers a number of programs through partners in Singapore, Hong Kong, mainland China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Belgium, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. It collaborates with communities and universities in the Asia-Pacific and other regions through the Disaster Research Network.

RMIT's Disaster Research Network addresses the increasing need for research, innovation, and partnership to support disaster prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery in Australia and internationally. Drawing together over 80 researchers from a broad range of disciplines, the RMIT Disaster Research Network takes a multi-disciplinary approach to disaster research, working together with practitioners and communities to strengthen resilience and research impact. The Network provides our partners with easy access to research expertise and opportunities to collaborate. The Network also enables a coordinated and timely response to calls for research capability and facilitates industry-academia events.

Affiliate members of the Centre also conduct relevant research in the fields of engineering, public health, nursing, journalism/media, psychology, education, anthropology, human geography and the broader social sciences.

The Centre has extensive experience in the translation of research and science into effective policy recommendations and action.
