Innovative Manufacturing CRC
IMCRC - Driving industry transformation
Welcome to the Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (IMCRC). The IMCRC’s focus is the development and support of ‘manufacturing innovation’ in Australia, specifically in being an enabler and removing impediments for innovative industries, across a range of key growth sectors.
Through active support for research into and adoption of enabling technologies such as additive manufacturing, automated and assistive technologies and accelerated high value product development, together with innovative business processes and models for industry transformation, IMCRC is uniquely placed to meet Australia’s future needs in these critical areas.
IMCRC will bring industry into clusters together with world-leading research capability and through the development and application of new materials, systems and technologies, will create new products, processes and business models. These will enable industry to embrace the innovative manufacturing paradigm of high value, high knowledge, customer-specific products of the future.
Through extensive industry networks, membership based organisations and direct engagement with manufacturers, IMCRC will create an open engagement model and provide a focal point for innovative manufacturing businesses to cluster and engage Australia’s hidden innovation champions.
IMCRC features an Industry Portal to engage new industry participants. Companies will initially engage with the IMCRC as 'Portal Partners'. The annual Portal Partner membership will provide firms with baseline information services and access to a range of Portal events. The Industry Portal will set a high baseline for company engagement, reflecting best practice internationally.
