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.

Using a whole-of-system approach, our cross-disciplinary research investigates the integration of smart materials and systems into technology platforms to address industry’s future needs.

We are improving aged care, predicting severe weather events and optimising logistics, energy and data networks. Our nanotechnology is boosting drug delivery and fuel cells, and our smart cricket balls are helping bowlers take wickets.
