CRC Project winners announced

Winners of the fourth round of CRC Projects are announced, all with university participants engaging with industry. They are as applied as applied research can get – CRC P’s are limited time and address specific projects with immediate outcomes. The programme “is addressing a significant gap in the Australian innovation system and the high number of applicants putting up very significant resources of their own is fantastic,” Tony Peacock from the Cooperative Research Centres Association says.

Dr Peacock is especially-impressed with the water-pipe lining project, “the potential for savings” are “staggering.”
