SURFS up in Toowoomba, Ipswich and Bendigo

The federal government’s Strategic University Reform Fund provides Uni Southern Queensland with $2m to research micro-processing “for converting challenging waste streams into novel products.”

SURF also allocates $2m to La Trobe U for a manufacturing and innovation hub in Bendigo. Apparently, it will provide “specialist advice and practical support” for businesses that want to  develop digital capacity.
