The HEARing Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) is focused on the twin challenges of more effective prevention and improved remediation of hearing loss. Hearing loss affects one in six Australians, with a total financial cost estimated to be around $23 billion per annum. Through research and its utilisation, the HEARing CRC aims to reduce the impact of hearing loss by:

  • maximising lifelong hearing retention
  • reducing loss of productivity due to hearing loss
  • increasing uptake and use of hearing technology; and
  • providing postgraduate education and professional training
