Platform Technologies Research Institute
The Institute is noted for its excellent achievements through participation in Commonwealth Government Cooperative Research Centres, State Government Centres of Excellence, Australian Research Council Grant Schemes and joint activities with industry, community and government.
The Platform Technologies Research Institute was established in 2008 to lead RMIT’s cross-disciplinary research in the integration of smart materials and systems into technology platforms, which meet future industry requirements linking new discoveries and emerging technologies to applications.
Central to the way the Institute conducts its research is the integrated systems approach, which focuses on improvements to total system performance through coordinated design and fusion of smart materials and systems.
The Institute fosters a dynamic research culture at RMIT through the establishment of cross disciplinary strategic initiatives across the three RMIT Colleges - Science Engineering and Health, Business and Design and Social Context.
