In a bid to bolster the Australian manufacturing sector, an Additive Manufacturing CRC Industry Workshop is set to take place on Tuesday, 30 January 2024, at Curtin University.

The event, scheduled from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. AWST, will offer attendees the opportunity to connect with industry experts, network with like-minded professionals, and delve into the latest advancements in additive manufacturing.

The focal point of the workshop will be a comprehensive exploration of the Additive Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) bid.

Participants will gain insights into the bid’s objectives and how it aims to transform the landscape of AM in Australia.

Furthermore, renowned researchers from Curtin University will share their expertise in additive manufacturing.

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore cutting-edge research and learn about the university’s capabilities in driving advancements in this field.

A discussion will be dedicated to addressing the challenges faced by the manufacturing industry, particularly in the context of international competition.

Participants will engage in meaningful conversations about strategies to overcome these challenges and strengthen Australia’s position on the global stage.

The workshop will also provide a platform to explore industry-specific problems that could potentially be addressed through the Additive Manufacturing CRC.

Collaborative discussions will pave the way for innovative solutions to real-world challenges faced by the manufacturing sector.

Attendees will be informed about funding support available for eligible projects, and the workshop will detail how this support, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, can be leveraged to de-risk and expedite industry research.

The event will take place at the university’s T.L. Robertson Library (Building 105).
