Grant number: LE0882221 | Funding period: 2008 - 2008

Completed

Abstract

Light metals research is a designated national priority and under the national Light Metals Action Agenda, Australia recognizes a strategic interest in the growth of global markets for light metals and light metal technology in key sectors such as vehicles for road, rail and marine transport; and in the production, processing and applications of the light metals. The proposed Facility will provide the critical level of investment and the strategic national focus necessary to achieve competitive advantage in powder metallurgy processing. It will underpin substantial developments in the light metals industry nationally and globally. It will also support high profile Australian research groups.
