An information session will be held next Thursday for a proposed Regional Advanced Manufacturing CRC.
The bid is in its initial planning stage and is seeking partners, according to the CRC Association website, and notes the potential of the new sovereign manufacturing focus in terms of regional economies.
“The RAM CRC will bring together University and Industry partners from across the country to support product and process innovation, economic development, and jobs growth in the regions,” the bid description reads.
“Regionally based sectors such as agriculture, food and beverage, mining and resources, energy, health and social services, transport and supply chain logistics will all benefit from the research activities in a RAM CRC.
“The RAM CRC will play a significant role in transforming sovereign manufacturing in regional communities by building scale and strengthening capabilities in resilient, sustainable, agile, and connected regional and remote advanced manufacturing.”
Cooperative Research Centres run for terms up to ten years (though are generally seven years) and support collaborations between industry and public research partners, providing dollar-matched grant funding.
A free information session for the proposed RAM CRC will run over Zoom on Thursday April 29, from 12.30 – 2 pm (AEDT.) Those curious can register for the session here.
