Showcasing manufacturing at Geelong Design Week

November 3, 2023

Rising stars of Geelong proved manufacturing’s ingenious ability to adapt during a Geelong Manufacturing Council and Advanced Fibre Cluster event last week, part of the City’s Geelong Design Week.

The local audience heard about hydrogen drone production at Quickstep Group in Geelong, and about world-beating technology coming out of Deakin University’s IISRI — Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation.  BAE Systems Australia shared on the company’s support for SME growth and defence export opportunities.

It was great to see 80+ sign-ups to hear insights into how manufacturing is forever adapting and changing – and how Geelong’s world-class innovation capability stays the same.  The event – Smart Design & Technology in Defence and Advanced Manufacturing – was a collaboration of Geelong Manufacturing Council, the City of Greater Geelong and the Advanced Fibre Cluster, as part of the Geelong Defence Alliance.
