On the 19th of April 2022, our Industry Advisory Committee (IAC) met online for the first committee meeting of the year.

As one of the fundamental purposes of being an Australian Research Council Industrial Transformative Training Centre, we aim to bring together leading researchers, industry partners and end-users to train a new generation of interdisciplinary and skilled graduates to tackle industry-focused challenges in joint biomechanics.

We reviewed and celebrated the successes of 2021, discussed ways to improve engagement between our students and industry partners and got industry feedback on our research programs.

We provided an update on the progress of our four research programs and impact of the centre, with  discussions to shape how to best manage and facilitate employability opportunities for students at the centre.

Thank you to Alex Muir for chairing. Looking forward to see you all in person later in the year in November.
