NUW+UTS Research Vision for the AMRF

The vision for the AMRF

To realise positive social and economic transformation for the Western Parkland City through the application of collaborative research, technology and innovations at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility.

Combined, the NUW+UTS consortium constitutes Australia’s largest, highest quality, and most industry-engaged research entity. This is an unprecedented grouping of world-class researchers, and a step change in research capacity. Together, the consortium marshals a network of specialist facilities, institutes, and expertise; driving in-excess of $1.4 billion in industry and community partnered research, backed by nearly 18,000 staff, and over 240,000 students across technology-infused teaching and research infrastructure and precincts.

Funded by the NSW Government, the planned Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) - to be adjacent to the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport - is the ideal focal point for the NUW+UTS consortium’s research vision. The Western Sydney City Deal commitment to developing a highly collaborative, research intensive and industry engaged ecosystem, via the AMRF, is an approach well aligned to the existing modality of research and development across the NUW+UTS consortium universities.
