Where to from here?

"We are now moving into a formalisation phase of the Research Hub; communication will begin with all participants individually and as a group over the next few weeks to consolidate all the combined learnings and efforts as we, universities and industry, work together to develop and submit towards the latter part of 2016, a winning proposal to the Australian Research Council. Discussions will also begin to discuss formal participation in and future contributions to this Research Hub initiative.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you wish for us to be in touch with you sooner to discuss any matter related to this Research Hub."
