Towards Zero Emission - CRCs Perspective

Learn how Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) are helping to decarbonise the Australian economy.

CR Czero

As both, Innovate Australia and Regional Development Australia-Perth have been at the forefront of promoting zero emission related technologies, we are delighted to invite you to meet four Australian business leaders representing CRCs at the forefront of decarbonising the Australian economy.

Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) are an Australian Federal Government program administered by the Commonwealth Department of Industry and Science. CRCs are key bodies for Australian scientific research. The Cooperative Research Centres Programme was established in 1990 to enhance Australia's industrial, commercial and economic growth through the development of sustained, user-driven, cooperative public-private research centres that achieve high levels of outcomes in adoption and commercialisation. The program emphasises the importance of collaborative arrangements to maximise the benefits of research through an enhanced process of utilisation, commercialisation and technology transfer.
