“The innovation hub will enable transformational research to link with key innovative companies to develop new technologies for a clean energy future,” said Professor Simon McKirdy, pro vice chancellor of the Harry Butler Institute at Murdoch University.
The Hub aims to grow the expertise in and market for energy transformation, power storage, battery cells, raw materials processing services and data analysis.
