The Australian Research Council provides funding to research hubs and training centres to support researchers to gain real-world skills through the Industrial Transformation Research Program.
The Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer (OCSE) provides co-funding to research hubs and training centres in NSW under the Industrial Transformation Research Program. In 2020, OCSE provided co-investment to:
Research Hub for Microrecycling of Battery and Consumer Waste
The research hub aims to address the challenge associated with complex wastes such as batteries along with their plastic cases and consumer wastes by establishing synthesis of value-added materials extracted from such wastes and subjecting them to new manufacturing processes.
Research Hub to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance
The research hub will take on the global challenge of antimicrobial (AMR) resistance for Australia through a world-first partnership between industry, researcher and end users.
Data Analytics for Resources and Environments (DARE) Industrial Transformation Centre
The University of Sydney
The Data Analytics for Resources and Environments Centre (DARE) will enable researchers to apply their data science models against real world challenges, such as water storage, biodiversity loss and the extraction of mineral resources.
In previous years, OCSE has provided co-investment support to the following Industrial Transformation Training Centres and Research Hubs based in NSW.
