The major challenge addressed by the CRC for Polymers is to establish Australian manufacturing as a leading provider and exporter of products that meet emerging global needs in three areas - health therapies and delivery, water and food security, and low-cost solar energy – using enabling and sustainable advanced polymer technology.

The CRCP will build resilience into Australian manufacturing by improving sustainability and increasing international competitiveness, product innovation, and jobs. The benefits that the CRCP will deliver include productivity gains, increased sales of Australian made products, high-skill high-value manufacturing jobs, reduced carbon dioxide emissions and 40 broadly trained polymer researchers.
