The ARC Research Hub for Future Fibres utilises the capabilities of Deakin's Institute for Frontier Materials by connecting with Industry Partners to solve real world problems.
It harnesses the unique capabilities of the largest and most advanced fibre research group in the Southern Hemisphere, for research across the whole Fibre Value Chain.
Our focus is on sustainability, circular economics and extraordinary functionality.Find out more
They’re in things we touch and use every day, from our clothing to furniture and even in our cars. Fibres can be made from a host of natural and synthetic polymers such as the cellulose that forms plant cell walls or wool from sheep, through to manufactured polyester and carbon fibres.
They are incredibly versatile and useful in a plethora of applications. Australia has a rich history in the fibre production and textile manufacturing industries.
Our goal is to provide high impact research that helps our industry partners gain and maintain their competitive advantage.
