Work with us

NAL’s team of dedicated researchers is focused on finding solutions to improve the lives of people with hearing difficulties – and we want to work with individuals, teams and organisations that have the same vision. 

We regularly collaborate with other researchers from universities and research institutes around the globe to deliver a diverse range of project outcomes from innovative hearing service pathways  to co-designing novel hearing technology solutions. Within the last three years, we have completed 63 projects with organisations including Macquarie University, Western Sydney University, Sydney Children’s Hospital Network and Boston University. 

NAL’s innovative and contemporary research methods also add value to industry partners. NAL provides a range of solutions including customer insights, subject matter expertise and real-world patient benefit validation of novel hearing services and technology solutions. Recent partnerships include Cochlear, Phonak, Google and Nuheara.
