Deakin University

Deakin is a leading regional based university with a track record of developing successful partnerships with industry and government. The University’s Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus hosts the Geelong Technology Precinct (GTP), a place where  industry interfaces with Deakin’s world class researchers in a multi-disciplinary environment.

Through its Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM), Deakin focuses its expertise in composites, fibres, metals and polymers and generates outstanding research on new materials, modelling and simulation as well as production methods. This expertise crosses materials boundaries and extends, in scale, from materials and materials interface investigation and manipulation to full production modelling and factory layout analysis.

Carbon Nexus further strengthens research capabilities within IFM and enables research into the chemical, mechanical and nanoscale characteristics of carbon fibre.

Victoria State Government

The Victorian Government continues to demonstrate its commitment to supporting a globally competitive industry through the development of new productivity networks, support for new technology and innovation and specialist advice and services for Victorian research institutions as well as Victorian manufacturers.

The Victorian Government provided $10m to support the development of Carbon Nexus.

Australian Government

The Australian Government provided funding for the construction of the Carbon Nexus facility through its Education Investment Fund (EIF). Funding for Carbon Nexus is part of the $35m provided by the Australian Government for the development of the Australian Future Fibres Research and Innovation Centre (AFFRIC) which is accelerating research on all aspects of fibre manufacturing, including carbon fibre.
