Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies

QCFAT

The Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT) is Australia's largest integrated research and development precinct for the resources and associated advanced technology industries.

A world-class research and development precinct, QCAT is focused on providing the highest standard science, engineering and innovation to the Australian mining, exploration, minerals processing, and manufacturing industries, with particular focus on those resources and industries located in Queensland.

A collaboration between the CSIRO, the Queensland Government, cooperative research centres and R&D industries, QCAT aims to increase the international competitiveness and efficiency of Queensland’s and Australia’s resource-based and related industries.

A number of leading R&D providers have moved to the precinct, attracted by the world-class facilities and potential for collaboration with CSIRO. This has seen the development of a number of key R&D clusters including:

• Smart mining 
• Australia's low emission coal technology
• Autonomous systems
• Advanced minerals processing

The synergy between groups onsite and QCAT’s industry collaborators has also led to the development of two new emerging R&D clusters in niche manufacturing and advanced aeronautical engineering.
