With an emphasis on driving the local development of new products and technologies and by improving the competitiveness of Australia’s rail manufacturing industry, the Rail Manufacturing CRC’s programs were selected based on making a substantial contribution to developing and sustaining increased levels of local work. The focus on creating jobs of high technological content was also expected to contribute to attracting the best and brightest university students into the rail industry.
The Rail Manufacturing CRC was established in 2014 as a collaboration between the rail industry, government and academia to build a more agile, globally competitive and resilient local industry, with a focus on innovation.
The Rail Manufacturing CRC ceased its project funding in 2020 at the conclusion of its six year co-funding arrangement via the Federal Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Program. The company’s corporate functions ceased in early 2021
