In this episode of Stirring the Pot, we talk with our General Manager Welding Centre on what research projects his team will be focused on to assist our membership in the New Zealand metals-based industry.
We discuss the Welding Research Panel, who is represented on it, and how they were able to choose the projects to focus on for industry, as well as the projects themselves:
seismic research program,
advanced design capability program,
performance of coastal weathering steels,
national register for certified welders,
training and international visitors planned,
engagement program with SMEs,
the Innovation Centre initiative,
Automation and Defence clusters, and
our future vision for the Welding Centre team.
This podcast is part of our commitment to provide greater transparency and visibility of the R&D focuses we have.
