ARC funds future fibre science centre in Geelong

A national research laboratory that will focus on advanced fibre technologies has been launched at Deakin University in Victoria.

The centre has received five-year grant of $4.7 million from the Australian Research Council’s Industrial Transformation Research Programme, and $13m from aerospace, automotive, biomedical and textile companies.  

The ARC Future Fibre Industry Hub will be based at Geelong, and will undertake research in three areas. These are short and nanofibres for high performance filtration systems and energy generation, carbon fibre composites, and the use of fibres in biomedical implants, such as artificial eardrums.
