The new centre will foster professional skills among researchers and help them launch their careers in industry. It is being funded by the Australian Technology Network (ATN) of Universities: the RMIT; Queensland University of Technology; the University of Technology, Sydney; Curtin University; and the University of South Australia.
Launching the pilot centre in mathematics today at the annual ATN Symposium, Innovation Minister Senator Kim Carr congratulated the ATN on its efforts to bridge the gap between the academy and the factory floor.
