Propelling Australian innovators into global manufacturing
We invest in bringing together the best minds and the greatest ideas to build a viable future for Australian manufacturing.
We offer Australian SMEs an easy path to delivery through collaboration, advocacy, education, global insight, valuations and innovation frameworks. Established in 2008 with Commonwealth Funding of $35 million over 7 years and matched with industry contributions of $21 million, the AMCRC has operated as a Company Limited by Guarantee, and has established two wholly owned subsidiaries, AMCRC PTY LTD and Innovativity Ltd.
The AMCRC conservatively estimates a risk-weighted benefit of $315 million to direct
beneficiaries of the research, with indirect social, environmental and reputational benefits accruing.
From collaboration projects such as the Stem Cell proliferation systems with Cytomatrix, Deakin and Monash University to Solar Panel Inverter technologies with MIL-Systems, CPT and RMIT and through a multitude of research and industry partners the technologies developed within the AMCRC are continuing to come to market. Through the seeds sown within the AMCRC these partners and the broader Australian Advanced Manufacturing community will continue to generate impact long into the future.

Minister Ian Macfarlane announced the Round 16 CRC Program funding on 21 February 2014, noting, “the Advanced Manufacturing and Manufacturing Industry Innovation CRCs are well positioned to assist the Australian manufacturing industry to adapt to new, high tech manufacturing processes and will assist in opening new markets. These applications displayed merit and are proposing to address issues of national importance. As such I have asked these CRCs to submit a combined proposal for my consideration.” Please click here for the new submission timelines.
