Aim

The Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme engages Australia's best researchers in issues facing the new industrial economies and training the future workforce. The scheme supports collaborative research activity, between the Australian higher education sector and industry, designed to focus on strategic outcomes that are not independently realisable.

The Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme provides funding to Eligible Organisations to engage in cutting-edge research on new technologies and economic, commercial and social transformation which support the development of research outcomes that benefit industry partners in the Industrial Transformation Priorities.

The Industrial Transformation Priorities are priority research areas identified by the ARC which will be updated from round to round. In the priorities are:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Cyber Security
  • Food and Agribusiness
  • Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals
  • Mining Equipment, Technology and Services
  • Oil, Gas and Energy Resources

The scheme's objectives are to:

  • encourage collaborative R&D projects between universities and organisations outside the Australian higher education sector that will solve challenging industry issues relevant to the Industrial Transformation Priorities
  • drive growth, productivity and competitiveness within key growth sectors
  • leverage national and international investment in targeted industry sectors, including from industry and other research end-users
Funding

The Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme provides project funding of $500,000 to $1 million per year for three to five years.

Partner Organisations must make combined cash and in-kind contribution to the Project that at least matches the total funding requested from the ARC. At least 75% must be in cash, depending on the number of employees (see sections A3.6 and A3.7 of the Grant Guidelines).
