Geelong Future Industry Project

Creating new technologies supporting Geelong’s emerging nanofibre manufacturing capability.

The Geelong Future Industry Project was successfully piloted with Skilling the Bay funding support. The pilot project featured a collaboration between local biotechnology company Cytomatrix with Geelong-based engineering firm Austeng; and Deakin University. The project developed a world-first pilot manufacturing plant for the production of short nanofibres.
The project built on innovative technology in nanofibre manufacturing developed by researchers from Cytomatrix and Deakin University. The ultimate goal of the project was to create a new, significant and sustainable nano-manufacturing capability in the Geelong region, and to build new skills to support the emerging industry.
The participation of students from Deakin University and The Gordon was an important component of the project’s success. Cytomatrix engaged undergraduate and postgraduate students from Deakin University while Austeng providing workplace training for engineering students from The Gordon and Deakin University.
