On 11 March, the Future Battery Industries CRC held a very successful participant summit attended by over 100 people representing 60 organisations.

It was at the beginning of a busy and successful week for the CRC with the full FBICRC Board meeting for the first time on 12 March and the official launch of the Centre by the Federal Minister for Industry, Science & Technology the Hon Karen Andrews on 13 March.

Participants gained an overview of our progress and achievements to date, the current projects under development, and were inspired to contribute to our future directions and vision as a CRC with addresses by Curtin Deputy Vice Chancellor Research Chris Moran, Minister Johnston, FBICRC Chairman Tim Shanahan and Board advisor Christina Lampe-Onnerud.
