General information

If your organisation is interested in undertaking a project with AMRF, please submit a proposal via the Project Proposal Template form below.

The AMRF team also wants to hear from industry about ways to maximise the value of the AMRF to the manufacturing industry. Please click here to take our survey. We are keen to receive information about your organisation's research and development priorities and feedback on AMRF market propositions. This market input will be critical to ensuring the AMRF delivers long-term benefits and is primed to support your organisation’s priority projects. 

Please note, you can save your progress and resume a previously saved form at any point.

Project proposals

  • Customer submits project proposal
  • AMRF reviews project proposal and determines if it is feasible
  • Jointly develop project scope, which informs project price
  • Parties enter into binding project agreement
  • Project is scheduled

Assessment of project proposals and considerations

In assessing project proposals, the AMRF will give consideration to the following and any other relevant matters that may come to its attention:

  • Project requirements: feasibility of the project and project scope
  • Technology and resource availability at the AMRF: alignment of the project’s timing requirements with expected availability of the equipment and expert resources at the AMRF
  • Customer readiness: the customer is ready to commence projects at the AMRF
  • Alignment of objectives: project will deliver meaningful benefits to the customer, enhance manufacturing processes and knowledge, or benefit the NSW manufacturing industry as a whole

Confidential discussions

Proposed projects that align with the AMRF’s capabilities and objectives will be explored further in one-on-one, confidential discussions with the AMRF team.

During the discussion stage, the AMRF team will work with the customer to scope the project proposal and discuss appropriate commercial terms where required. The confidential discussions will also inform the scheduling of projects at the AMRF. While the AMRF aims to support as many projects as possible, some projects may occur before others due to capacity and availability of resources.

If project scope, deliverables, and pricing are agreed in-principle between the AMRF and customer, these terms will be reflected in a binding project agreement.

Please complete the form below with information related to your organisation and project and submit.
