Dairy Innovation Hub: Transformational Research to Underpin the Future of the Australian Dairy Manufacturing Industry (ARC ITRH grant administered by the University of Melbourne) (2014–2019)

Abstract:
The dairy manufacturing industry contributes significantly to the Australian economy through strong exports and regional employment but is facing severe economic and environmental pressures that constrain future growth. Led by Melbourne University, the Dairy Innovation Hub will combine the expertise of three academic and industrial research teams to develop breakthrough technical solutions that overcome these challenges. A multidisciplinary program of transformational research will draw on cutting edge science and emerging technologies to develop new cost-effective separation and concentration processes and innovative low cost dairy products that are nutritional and have a longer shelf-life for domestic and export markets.
