The ARC Research Hub for Future Fibres is an Australian Research Council (ARC) supported initiative which strives to accelerate the transformation of the Australian manufacturing industry by developing novel fibre technologies to facilitate more sustainable, advanced manufacturing of fibre materials and products that will impact on significant global issues, including reducing our environmental footprint and improving public health and wellbeing.
The Hub received $4.7 million funding from the Australian Research Council as part of its Industrial Transformation Research Hub scheme. Further contributions from partners have given the Hub a total value of $13.2 million over five years.
Led by Deakin University, the Hub contains three research Programs, centred on nanofibres, advanced carbon fibres and high value-added applications.
It brings together five industrial partners:
- HeiQ Pty Ltd
- Carbon Revolution Pty Ltd
- Quickstep Automotive Pty Ltd
- Ear Science Institute Australia Inc
- Draggin Jeans Pty Ltd.
They are joined by experts from Swinburne University of Technology, CSIRO and six international higher education institutions.
The ARC Research Hub for Future Fibres is located in the Institute for Frontier Materials on the Waurn Ponds Campus of Deakin University.
