Partnership success stories

Access leading research facilities

Your partnership with Deakin opens the door to multimillion dollar research facilities and infrastructure, some of which can’t be found anywhere outside of our campuses.

Our facilities are shared by researchers from each of our four faculties, giving you access to future-focused technology and new ways of thinking about your question or product. Some of our unique facilities include:

  • Carbon Nexus – a world-first, open-access facility with an unparalleled suite of carbon fibre research technology
  • BatTRI-Hub – an innovative research centre focused on advanced battery prototyping and commercialisation
  • Cognitive neuroscience facilities – featuring EEG, EMG, TMS, near infrared spectroscopy and much more
  • Motion.Lab – research, art and movement-based technology intersect at this reality-bending VR facility

Based on a tour of the Deakin facility and meeting the team, we were inspired to work together and saw real possibilities to develop the technology for industrial and training applications.
