About

The Woodside FutureLab is a transformational hub for technological innovation located at Monash University’s Clayton campus. With this relationship, Woodside and Monash will work together to focus on integrating rapid prototyping, advanced materials and information technology across all operations.

Solving energy challenges, now and into the future, requires a mindset of inventiveness and collaboration. Woodside FutureLab at Monash utilises expertise from disciplines outside of traditional engineering – in automation, in additive manufacturing, in artificial intelligence – to explore possibilities and identify viable solutions for a brighter, sustainable future.

Our team

We are committed to bringing together leading researchers and industry from across Monash, and beyond, into a research partnership that fosters an innovative and collaborate approach to problem solving. Together with the participation of global leaders, we are passionate to accelerate the development and deployment of new solutions to shared global energy challenges.
