Research Centres, Hubs and Institutes

The core aims of the SMaRT Centre are to develop novel research for sustainable materials and manufacturing processes, build industry partnerships to activate research for real world impact, and to disseminate green materials and manufacturing technologies that benefit industries, local communities, and enhance sustainable economic growth internationally.

FLEET addresses a grand challenge: reducing the energy used in information technology, which now accounts for 8% of the electricity use on Earth, and is doubling every 10 years.

The current, silicon-based technology will stop becoming more efficient in the next decade as Moore’s law comes to an end.

FLEET is the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies

    The Materials and Manufacturing Futures Institute at UNSW Sydney is studying, building and transforming the future of materials innovation and advanced manufacturing — we are an interdisciplinary research hub delivering real-world social benefits and tangible solutions to emerging global problems.

    The Baosteel-Australia Joint Research and Development Centre is a world-first joint venture between Basoteel - one of the world’s largest steel companies, and four Australian universities. It seeks to create an enduring collaboration between Baosteel and four leading Australian universities, The University of Queensland, The University of New South Wales, Monash University and University of Wollongong, to conduct research and to provide innovative technologies in areas of interest to Baosteel.

    Since its inception by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 1988, the ‘China Torch Program’ has created over 150 high tech zones across China and more importantly become the engine room of innovation, urbanisation and economic growth.
