Research giants join forces

 

Monash University and CSIRO have joined forces to develop a world-class innovation precinct that will underpin the future of Australian manufacturing.
 
The strategic relationship agreement, signed recently, brings together one of Australia's leading research-intensive universities and the national science agency, to develop their shared vision for the Australian Manufacturing and Materials Innovation Precinct at Clayton, a suburb of Melbourne.
 
The Clayton Precinct will harness the two organisations' strengths to support an innovative and sustainable future for Australian manufacturing by focusing on advanced materials and clean manufacturing technologies. 
 
Through translational research and liaison with industry, it will enhance the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector.
 
Monash Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Ed Byrne said the complementary research strengths and shared vision of the University and CSIRO would lead to exciting results for Australian industry. 


 
"Both Monash and CSIRO have recognised the importance of developing expertise in areas such as materials science and engineering that are vital to developing innovative solutions in manufacturing. These strengths can only be enhanced by working together," Professor Byrne said. "I am excited by what will be achieved when the best minds in these fields are brought together and provided with world-class infrastructure in the Clayton Precinct." 


 
CSIRO Chief Executive, Dr Megan Clark said the relationship is built on a shared vision and will create the global standing and scale of research and development needed to help Australian industry compete globally. 

“It will help build the factories of the future,” Dr Megan Clark said.
