Industrial Transformation Research Hubs

Labor has always understood that the application of science and research is critical to sustaining modern industries and transitioning to the jobs of the future. In Government, Labor established the Industrial Transformation Research Hubs (ITRH) program to bring researchers and industry together to design and engineer commercially and technically viable solutions to some of our most pressing industrial problems.

The ITRH program has been successful and has potential to grow and support transition and modernisation across a wider range of industries. Labor will boost the Industrial Transformation Research Program to support additional collaborative research projects to ensure Australian industries can take advantage of new opportunities, and that new industries can emerge through the application of the excellent research produced by Australian universities.
