The CRC programme supports industry led end-user driven research collaborations to address the major challenges facing Australia. Australia’s network of CRCs operates across all sectors of Australia’s economy and society.

Feature Program


This research program is built on a simple premise: that cheaper, more productive, safer and environmentally friendly drilling will lead to more metres drilled, which will deliver more discoveries and reduce the cost of developing those discoveries.
