ARC Centre for Forest Value


Australian Research Council

The ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Forest Value is 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.

Industry Partners

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 (Forico, Greening Australia, SFM Forest Products, Sustainable Timber Tasmania, Neville Smith Forest Products, Forest and Wood Products Australia, Private Forests Tasmania and Forest Practices Authority) who will provide strategic advice and evaluate and refine research outputs to optimise the benefits and impacts arising from the Training Centre and to support industry transformation. These organisations are all strongly committed to supporting and developing the postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows who will drive the Centre's research activity and to working with each other to ensure that these early career researchers interact with their activities. Importantly these organisations have existing collaborative relationships with the University of Tasmania (UTAS) and with each other.
