The research program is centred around the three core pillars: products, processes and supply chain, building on the expertise available within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies and the wider university. The research streams below are designed to be inter-linked and complementary. As a key focus of the CAFE is translational research with impact, each stream is designed to address concrete and commercial challenges facing society today. Each stream will develop solutions for these challenges and then translate them from the laboratory to the marketplace, with resulting benefits for all stakeholders (industry, the university, consumers and society).
