A new ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre based at Deakin University has been funded by the Australian Government with $4.38 million through the ARC’s Industrial Transformation Research Program, to equip the next generation of researchers and the energy technology workforce with the skills needed to drive innovation, exploration and investigation to safeguard Australian workers and industries.

Led by Professor Maria Forsyth, the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Future Energy Storage Technologies aims to challenge existing thinking and expand Australia’s capacity in energy storage and production. The Centre will create new knowledge and intellectual property in advanced energy materials, batteries and battery-control systems for integration into end user industries.

Working with fourteen organisations across government and industry, and four other Australian universities, researchers at the centre will facilitate small to medium-sized enterprises to take a global leadership role in advancing and producing new age storage technologies. By harnessing the expertise of researchers and industry partners the ARC Training Centre for Future Energy Storage Technologies aims to deliver benefit to our economy, the community and the environment.
