The ARC Research Hub to Advance Timber for Australia’s Future Built Environment (ARC Advance Timber Hub) is an Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Research Hub.
The ARC Advance Timber Hub aims to develop the resources, enablers, and drivers to advance sustainable timber, as a natural resource, to be the material of choice, leading towards a net zero future for Australia’s built environment. It intends to support the transformation of Australia’s timber and construction sectors by:
The expected outcomes will kickstart the change process, supported by growth in advanced manufacturing across the value chain. This should provide significant benefits in stimulating an opportunity for regional development and resource diversification whilst helping Australia’s timber and construction sectors transition to a circular and net-zero economy.
The ARC Advance Timber Hub is administered by The University of Queensland’s School of Civil Engineering and is funded by our partners with major funding support from the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council.
The ARC Advance Timber Hub’s research will be focused on three over-arching themes of Innovative Solutions, Transformative Benefits and Planning Change, undertaken through eight inter-related Research Nodes and their projects.
