Australian Research Council
The ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Forest Value was supported through funding from the Australian Research Council's Industrial Transformation Training Centres scheme (project number IC150100004). The Centre, located within the University of Tasmania, has been made possible through $3.6 million funding from the Australian Research Council, with additional funding from our industry partners and the University of Tasmania.
The Centre's research and training plan targets the whole value chain from component design and construction, component fabrication, wood products manufacture, log harvesting, forest production, certification and forest restoration. Consequently, the Centre includes collaborations with partners focused on each of these elements who provided strategic advice and evaluate and refine research outputs to optimise the benefits and impacts arising from the Training Centre and to support industry transformation.
