AMGC event helps bridge the gap between research and industry


The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre’s (AMGC’s) “Path to advanced manufacturing” symposium on July 4 brought together more than 200 industry and academic experts at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney to share ideas on how Australian manufacturers can add value to their businesses through collaboration.
The attendees listened to case studies presented by SMEs actively engaged with universities in developing new products. The program also included tours of UNSW’s Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) and the ARC Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC).

AMAC Official Opening


The official opening of the ARC Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC) was held on Monday, 27th Nov’2017 at UNSW Sydney in conjunction with the 9th Australasian Congress on Applied Mechanics (ACAM9). Together the events were attended by over 250 distinguished delegates from all over the globe. Dr. Fiona Cameron, ARC Senior Executive Director officially launched the centre on behalf of the ARC CEO, Prof. Sue Thomas.

Who are we?
