Congratulations to Professor Kerry Wilkinson for her ARC Mid-Career Industry Fellowship.

Kerry’s project will focus on “Unlocking the potential for winemaking applications of membrane filtration” and is testament to her amazing efforts to work together with industry over many years.

The primary goal of the Industry Fellowship Program is to create a pathway to support academic researchers in establishing careers in industry, and industry-based researchers to work in university settings, with the aim of increased two-way mobility and skill-building in research collaboration, translation and commercialisation across a range of industry settings. 

The objectives of the Mid-Career Industry Fellowship scheme are to: 

  • strengthen the industry collaboration skills of mid-career researchers,
  • encourage uptake of a wider range of career options for established researchers,
  • supervise and develop future research and nurture their development of collaboration, commercialisation and translation skills; and
  • deliver significant, actionable outcomes for industry partners and end-users.
