Scientists and Australian businesses, led by Imagine Intelligent Materials came together this week in Melbourne for the Internet of Industrial Materials Conference 2017 to explore opportunities for Australian industry in the booming Internet of Things (IOT) sector, predicted to be worth $US 11 trillion in less than a decade (McKinsey study).

At the conference Swinburne University and Imagine Intelligent Materials cut the ribbon on the three-year Graphene Supply Chain CRC-P project. The effort is the first of its kind globally, and, backed by $943,937 in Commonwealth funding, will build predictability and replicability in this new advanced manufacturing industry.

The sold out event saw contributions from leading researchers in the field, including from CSIRO and Deakin, Swinburne and Melbourne Universities. Also presenting were experts on the Internet of Things and some of the worlds leading graphene focused companies.
