The Australia-China Joint Research Centre for Minerals, Metallurgy and Materials (3-M Centre) is established under the scheme of Australia-China Science and Research Fund (ACSRF). This centre will provide a platform to foster interdisciplinary collaborations between Australia and China to meet the challenges in the mineral, metallurgy and material industries which are of paramount importance to Australia and China. It focuses the R&D in raw material preparation, process metallurgy, material manufacturing and applications. Its collaborations include the conduct of collaborative research for developing innovative processes or products, training of young engineers and scientists, application and commercialization of research outcomes, academia and industrial linkages for knowledge and technology transfer, formulation of informative and strategic advice for the development of government policies. With the strategic support from Australian and Chinese governments, the Centre will provide an impetus to such ventures and also act to leverage the strong trade and cultural links between Australia and China into the development of technologies benefiting both countries.
