How can manufacturers help with the COVID-19 response?

The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) has launched a portal for Australian manufacturing, component suppliers and skilled design, engineering and manufacturing experts to register their interest and core competencies in support of the national response to COVID-19. The COVID-19 Manufacturer Response Portal is currently live, with all contact treated in confidence.

Australian manufacturers across multiple disciplines have expressed a desire to support in any way possible to address the current COVID-19 threat. The portal has been designed to help those wishing to assist so that others can gain an understanding of the skills, supplies and capabilities that exist right now, and potentially connect with the right government department or manufacturer needed at this time.

Alongside the registration portal, AMGC has also increased its support of Australian manufacturers and will be boosting its online Manufacturing Academy learning portal to provide online webinars. The organisation will also be broadcasting current state and federal government tenders and expressions of interest via its website and social media platforms.
