The University of Wollongong (UOW) has been awarded $5m funding as part of the Australian Government’s commitment to commercialising research. The Industrial Transformation Research Program will fund $36.4 million into 8 new research hubs. A further $37.8 million will see 8 new Training Centres commence operations.
UOW has received its funding for a training centre in Energy Technologies for Future Grids.
UOW Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Jennifer Martin (Research and Innovation) said the funding will help deliver world-class industry-linked research into renewable energy and boost Australia’s transition to a clean energy future.
‘The new training centre will deliver solutions to complex issues that create barriers to Australia’s transition to a clean energy future which is sustainable, cost effective and environmentally friendly,’ Professor Martin said.
