Industrial Transformation Research Hubs 2013


This is one element of the ARC's Industrial Transformation Research Program which is funded under the Linkage Program.

The Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme provides funding to engage in cutting edge research on new technologies and economic and social transformation and support the development of research in the Industrial Transformation Priorities. A strong collaboration and commitment of resources from innovative national and international industries is required; in turn the ARC will provide up to $1 million per annum funding for each Research Hub for a maximum of five (5) consecutive years.

The objectives of this scheme are to:

  • encourage collaborative R&D projects to solve challenging industry issues through innovative research relevant to the Industrial Transformation Priorities;
  • attract investment from the local, global and international business community by underpinning the internationally-recognised excellence of Australian universities and their industry partners; and
  • leverage national and international investment in targeted industry sectors.
Priorities Food and manufacturing. The Program will address research areas that are vital for, and assist with, Australia's future food storage, food processing, food manufacturing capabilities and product opportunities. In addition, the Program will target product design and development, manufacturing techniques, defence manufacturing and firm organisation and management.
