    Welcome to the Future Industries Institute.

    About us

Informed, industry-connected research and innovation in engineering and the physical sciences.

The University of South Australia’s (UniSA) new multi-million dollar Future Industries Institute (FII) focuses on building knowledge and capacity in core future industries. The Institute combines and builds from the established research capability and reputation of the former Ian Wark Research Institute, Mawson Institute and Centre for Environmental Risk Assessment and Remediation, and extends into other complementary research capabilities within the University's Division of Information Technology, Engineering and the Environment and across the university. 

Through national and global research partnerships in new technologies, such as our academic partnership with University College London (UCL), the Institute undertakes global research inspired by real-world issues. 

Based at the Mawson Lakes Campus, the FII further develops the University’s internationally competitive research capacity across four key strands:

  • Minerals and resources engineering
  • Energy and advanced manufacturing
  • Environmental science and engineering
  • Biomaterials engineering and nanomedicine

We aim to establish a vibrant research environment with a strong external orientation and active international and national links, both academic and industrial.
