Industrial Transformation Research Program

The ARC is planning to launch this program in early 2012.  

The Industrial Transformation Research Program supports quality R&D partnerships that
will help transform Australian industries so they can prosper in a richer, fairer and
greener Australia.  

The Program will: 

· focus on research areas that are vital for Australia’s future economic prosperity—such
as engineering, materials science and nanotechnology, communications, chemical
engineering and biotechnology; 

· support Industrial PhD students and researchers to gain ‘hands-on’, practical skills
and experience in these important areas; and 

· foster important partnerships between business and universities.  

To achieve this, the Program will fund Industrial Transformation Research Hubs and
Industrial Transformation Training Centres.  

Industrial Transformation Research Hubs 

These research hubs will encourage R&D projects that could help solve the big problems
facing our industries today.  In these hubs, managers, researchers and industry workers
will work together to address everything from our need to reduce pollution in our
manufacturing processes to our struggle to compete locally with a high Australian
dollar.  

Industrial Transformation Training Centres These training centres will foster close
partnerships between university-based researchers and the industry members who will use
the research outcomes.  

More details on the application process and timeline will follow early in 2012.

 I will be happy to meet with individuals and teams to discuss this opportunity in the
new year.  

 In the interim, best wishes for a fabulous holiday,
