Funding announced for ARC Training Centre

POSTED: 31 Jul, 2020

A research team lead by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has received $4.9 million from the Australian Research Council (ARC) for a new training centre for collaborative robots in manufacturing.

The joint project between QUT, The University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Swinburne University of Technology, and the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Hub (ARM Hub), will train researchers, engineers, technologists and manufacturing leaders with industry expertise needed for safety, quality assurance, production efficiency, and workforce readiness.

The Centre, headquartered at QUT, with two other locations at UTS and Swinburne University, aims to build human and technical capability needed to underpin Australia’s global competitiveness in advanced manufacturing.

The Centre officially opened in August 2021.
