ARC Training Centre in Lightweight Automotive Structures (ATLAS)

ATLAS aims to accelerate the transformation of Australia's automotive industry through new research capabilities in lightweight multi-material structures design and manufacture.

Administered through RMIT University, ATLAS brings together Deakin University, the Australian National University, lead industry partner the Ford Motor Company and a further 12 local and international partners organisations including the CSIRO to address the challenges in lightweighting.

Our role

ATLAS will deliver industry relevant research training to early career researchers at the  post-doctoral, post-graduate and under-graduate levels who benefit from both academic and industry mentors.

An integrated program of research projects aims to deliver critical knowledge and innovative lightweighting technologies to underpin new high-value products for global markets.
