The Industrial Transformation Training Centres scheme fosters close partnerships between university-based researchers and other research end-users to provide innovative Higher Degree by Research (HDR) and postdoctoral training, for end-user focused research industries that are vital to Australia's future.
The Industrial Transformation Priorities are research areas identified by the ARC that are updated from round to round. The current Industrial Transformation Priorities are:
- Advanced Manufacturing
- Cyber Security
- Food and Agribusiness
- Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals

The objectives of the Industrial Transformation Training Centres grant opportunity are to:
- support HDR candidates and postdoctoral researchers to undertake industrial training;
