APR.Intern

Knowledge and expertise to help transform your manufacturing business

A unique opportunity

We have partnered with APR.Intern to offer Australian manufacturers a cost-effective way to undertake short-term research projects in advanced and digital manufacturing.

Often smaller R&D initiatives get pushed aside due to pressing day-to-day business operations. Through APR.Intern – an all discipline PhD internship program – we offer manufacturing businesses the opportunity to explore Industry 4.0 technologies and lift their advanced manufacturing capabilities with the help of a PhD student over the course of 3-5 months.

Key benefits

  • Rapid results and a path to new manufacturing technologies / Industry 4.0 through a highly focused R&D project
  • Up to $13,000 in IMCRC support and a rebate under APR.Intern’s National Research Internship (NRIP) program
  • Project-related IP remains in control of the manufacturer
  • Minimal administration as the program is facilitated entirely by APR Intern
