Abstract


  • Australian industries have reached a turning point. With old industries on the way out, the

    Australian manufacturing sector’s biggest challenge is to move from a low-cost mass

    production model to one that exploits niche markets and adds value to the global supply

    chain.

    Research-driven technological advances are an essential part of that process. By building

    upon the country’s natural advantages, such as mineral and energy resources, this kind of

    progress can foster exciting, sustainable industries. The perfect example is graphene.
