Facility for advanced manufacturing and innovation

ManuFutures is a commercially-based, purpose-built advanced manufacturing innovation hub located within the heart of Deakin University's Geelong Innovation Precinct. It is currently under construction through a major investment partnership between the Victorian Government and Deakin University.

ManuFutures will support up to 15 enterprises and 150 people involved in sustainable manufacturing industries from post incubation (proof of concept) through to multi-nationals. It will provide flexible space and a stimulating and supportive environment to generate advanced products and manufacturing technologies.

Businesses will be able to lease space within the new building, while having access to cutting-edge equipment, collaboration with research staff, supportive activities and infrastructure. There is a wide range of tenancy options to fit individual requirements and specifications.
