ARC Training Centre for Innovative Composites for the Future of Sustainable Mining Equipment (ARC ITRP administered by the University of Wollongong) (2023–2028)
The Centre aims to train industry-focused researchers in advanced manufacturing of new-generation mining
equipment and sustainable mining technology, through close collaborations among key universities and mining
and manufacturing companies. The Centre will cultivate a team of world-class academic researchers and industry
leaders to deliver an innovative program of research of innovative composites coupled with work integrated
learning, to not only produce a workforce that meets future skills demand but also develop sustainable and costeffective
mining equipment and high efficiency mining technologies, benefiting the nation's manufacturing and
mining sectors and significantly enhancing the competitiveness of the Australian mining industry.
