The Additive Manufacturing CRC (Cooperative Research Centre) is set to host a partner workshop on 26 June at the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Hub in Northgate, Queensland.

The event aims to provide an overview of the CRC’s initiatives and research capabilities, with sessions on participating in research programs and education and training offerings.

As Stage 2 of the CRC Grants application opens in July, this workshop serves as a critical touchpoint for partners involved in transforming Australian manufacturing, as stated by the organisation in an Eventbrite post.

In particular, the workshop will commence with a warm welcome and introduction session at 9:00 AM, led by key representatives of the Additive Manufacturing CRC.

This will be followed by an in-depth overview of the CRC’s mission, goals, and ongoing initiatives, to be presented between 9:15 AM and 9:45 AM.

Participants will gain valuable insights into the CRC’s strategic objectives and its role in advancing additive manufacturing technologies across various sectors.

From 9:45 AM to 10:00 AM, attendees will be briefed on the specific research capabilities of Queensland-based partners within the CRC.

This session will highlight the diverse expertise and contributions of local institutions and organisations towards additive manufacturing research and development.

A significant portion of the workshop, scheduled from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM, will be dedicated to outlining opportunities for industry stakeholders to engage in the CRC’s research programs.

Participants will actively discuss potential collaborations and explore ways to leverage the CRC’s resources for mutual benefit and technological advancement.

The importance of education and training in additive manufacturing will be underscored during the session from 11:30 AM to 12:00 PM.

The CRC’s initiatives in this area aim to equip the workforce with essential skills and knowledge to drive innovation and competitiveness in the field.

The workshop will conclude with a session on next steps, to be held from 12:00 PM to 12:30 PM, where participants will be encouraged to outline actionable plans for further engagement with the CRC and its ongoing projects.
