Innovation & Collaboration Lane

In order to build Australian Manufacturing sovereignty and be a powerful force on the global manufacturing landscape more innovation is needed and therefore greater access to research and development is essential for manufacturers.

Universities, manufacturing hubs and research centres are opening themselves up to enable manufacturers to research, invest, test and commercialise new products and technologies. The path forward is through collaboration for better innovation. Be it how to utilise 3D in manufacturing, building a future proof green factory, becoming a smart manufacturer each university and research centre has differing skills sets in ways to assist the modern manufacturer.
