The Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC) is an industry-led, for-impact cooperative research centre (CRC) with a vision for Australian manufacturing to be thriving, relevant and globally integrated. We help transform Australian companies, particularly manufacturing SMEs, through collaborative investment, research impact and innovation in manufacturing business models, products, processes, and services. Having established a proven model for research and industry collaboration, we will have purposely invested $40m of Commonwealth funding over the six-year term of the CRC, catalysing more than $200m of investment in innovative manufacturing and Industry 4.0 research projects as well as SME engagement and education programs.
