25 October 2012

The ARC has released funding rules for two Industrial Transformation Research Program (ITRP) schemes: Research Hubs and Training Centres.

Applications are being sought for research that underpins future food storage; food processing; manufacturing capabilities; product opportunities and other food-related research.

Industrial Transformation Research Hubs
The Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme will engage researchers in issues facing the new industrial economies and training the future workforce. This scheme will support collaborative research activity between the Australian higher education sector and industry designed to focus on strategic outcomes not independently realisable.

Industrial Transformation Training Centres
Industrial Transformation Training Centres fosters close partnerships between university-based researchers and other research end-users to provide innovative Higher Degree by Research (HDR) and postdoctoral training for the end-user focused research industries vital to Australia's future.

Proposals will open on 6 November, and close on 18 December.
