The Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme engages Australia's best researchers in issues facing the new industrial economies and training the future workforce. The scheme supports collaborative research activity, between the Australian higher education sector and industry, designed to focus on strategic outcomes that are not independently realisable.
The objectives of the Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme are to:
encourage collaborative R&D projects between universities and organisations outside the Australian higher education sector that will solve challenging industry issues relevant to the Industrial Tranformation Priorities
drive growth, productivity and competitiveness within key growth sectors
leverage national and international investment in targeted industry sectors, including from industry and other research end-users.
