ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centres

Overview

This scheme fosters close partnerships between university-based researchers and industry to provide innovative Higher Degree by Research (HDR) and postdoctoral training for the end-user focused research industries vital to Australia’s future.

Industrial Transformation Priorities

Research proposals under this program must clearly address one or more of the industrial transformation priorities which may be updated in each round. The current priorities are:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Food and agribusiness
  • Oil, Gas and Energy Resources
  • Mining Equipment, Technology and Services
  • Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals (proposals under this priority are exempt from the ARC Medical Research Policy).
  • Cybersecurity*

These priorities are consistent with the five high-growth sectors established under the Industry Growth Centres initiative.

*Note that while this is not a current priority area, it is anticipated that this will be a new priority area in the upcoming round.
