The first offering of its kind in Australia, the AMRF will bring industry and universities together, alongside Australia’s national science agency the CSIRO, to access the latest technologies and research in advanced electronics and manufacturing, including robotics, additives and automation.

The AMRF will be located at Bradfield City Centre, Australia’s newest, greenest, most connected and technologically advanced city. Located at the heart of the Western Parkland City and on the doorstep of the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, the AMRF will become the beating heart of a new industry and innovation hub for NSW.
