Government puts up $249m for industry research

By

The federal government has put up $249 million in a package designed to help Australian industries become more competitive and create new job opportunities through the cooperative efforts of university researchers, business and industry.


The Industry Transformation Research program and cadetship package announced today by the Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Innovation Minister Senator Kim Carr, has been made available by the government to encourage a more competitive and research focused manufacturing sector creating quality jobs and building the industries of the future.

Senator Carr said Australia was endowed with top quality researchers and top quality industry and the new alliance bringing the two together 'just makes good sense.'

The minister said the measure meant that Australia's research effort will be better aligned with the needs of Australian industry.

'This Government has provided researchers with the best research infrastructure the country can afford - now we can give these cadets the best training experiences too.

'Manufacturers will have the benefit of additional research expertise and knowledge to tackle difficult problems in key sectors such as metals, food, energy, textiles, building and automotive.'

The package announced by the Prime Minister and the Minister today includes:

'¢    More than 1,000 engineering cadetships over the next four years so students can get the work experience they need to kick-start their careers in manufacturing and other Australian industries.

'¢    New research training centres that will provide quality industrial doctoral and postdoctoral training for up to 600 PhD students each year.

'¢    New research hubs bringing researchers and industry representatives together to design and engineer commercially and technically viable solutions to some of our most pressing industrial problems.
