Translation of Innovation: Transforming local industry through ACES/ANFF partnership

The close-working partnership between ACES and the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) Materials Node is having a significant impact on the translation of electromaterials science research into local industry.

The ANFF Materials Node is headquartered alongside ACES at the University of Wollongong, and provides researchers and clinicians with access to state-of-the-art fabrication capabilities and materials synthesis.


Smaller scale R&D projects between local businesses and ANFF have resulted in longer term research collaborations supporting local industry in business transformation and innovation in product design.

Additionally, emerging industries have used the ANFF capability to attract investment in new commercial entities based on ACES discoveries (e.g. AquaHydrex).
