A partnership between APR.Intern and the Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (IMCRC) will put new technologies, business models and digitalisation in reach of Australian manufacturing industry.
Under the agreement, IMCRC will provide eligible SMEs and larger businesses with an APR.Intern subsidy of up $10,000. This funding will help drive advanced and digital manufacturing and optimisation solutions by providing manufacturers with access to PhD-level research talent.
This subsidy can be combined with the Australian Government rebate.
These internships will contribute to placements delivered under the Australian Government’s ‘Supporting more women in STEM careers: Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI)—National Research Internship Program (NRIP)’.
Contact us for more information on how this subsidy can be combined with the Australian Government rebate.
|Proposed internship research aligns with IMCRC research themes||– Additive manufacturing
– Automation and robots
– Advanced materials
– Sensors and data analytics
– Industry transformation
|Proposed internship research is largely MRL3 or higher||Research maturity includes at least early proof of concept.|
|Australian manufacturer or significant part of Australian manufacturing innovation ecosystem||Also includes global manufacturers with significant operations in Australia.|
|Proposed internship research will reasonably lead to manufacturing outcomes in Australia||The internship research should result in developing positive changes in the manufacturing partner. E.g. discover or develop opportunities for industry diversification to access new markets; new product or process development; new business models; service extension or improvement; value chain creation; local supplier development; global supply chain access; net export growth; collaboration and industry involvement.|
