The Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies

Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies

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

The Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies provides a synergistic environment for ground breaking research, innovation and technology development between research providers, SME's and industry.

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:

  • Smart mining (mining systems and mining automation)
  • Focus of Australia's clean coal technology R&D
  • ICT (robotics and wireless networks)
  • Advanced minerals processing

The synergy between groups onsite and our industry collaborators has led to the development of two new emerging R&D clusters in:

  • Niche manufacturing
  • Advanced aeronautical engineering
