High tech partnership to boost research


Two of Australia’s scientific research heavyweights — Monash University and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) — will join forces to boost Australia’s research efforts at home and abroad.

Innovation and Industry Minister Senator Kim Carr said the new partnership would help facilitate knowledge sharing and create new training and development opportunities for Australian researchers.

“With ANSTO and Monash University researchers working together we can expect to see significant developments in key areas such as biomedical imaging, cancer therapy, accelerator and neutron science,” Senator Carr said.

“The agreement is particularly good news for Australia’s high-tech future, as the researchers and technicians of tomorrow can benefit as students from the collaborations of today.”
