More information

New technologies, digitalisation, global competition and changing markets are presenting Australian Manufacturers with new challenges and opportunities. CSIRO Futures published a roadmap for the Advanced Manufacturing sector in November 2016, endorsed by the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre. The roadmap identifies the developments in science and technology that will enable the sector to meet the challenges and benefit from the opportunities. They are well aligned with the capabilities of CSIRO.

This event will present the Advanced Manufacturing Roadmap, an overview of CSIRO's manufacturing research capabilities, information on the enabling science and technologies that are transforming the sector, and the assistance that is available through the Entrepreneurs’ Programme, Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre and the Innovative Manufacturing CRC.
