Many ARC researchers are experts at building industry support to strengthen an existing research program, which can also provide a pathway to industry employment for new graduates. Professor Yusuke Yamauchi is one of a small number of ARC supported researchers who are making these links directly with industry partners in Japan, and he has a vision of a bright future in manufacturing collaboration between Australian and Japanese industry.
