New Horizons is a ‘6 Star Green Star As-Built’ rated collaborative research centre located at Monash Clayton. Designed by Lyons Architects, it exists to create new multidisciplinary research opportunities for industry, engineers, scientists, researchers and government. Officially opened in 2013, the building was co-funded by the Australian Federal Government through the Education Investment Fund, Monash University, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). New Horizons co-locates and integrates around 500 staff from Monash and CSIRO, providing platforms for global research and teaching collaboration through state-of-the-art information technology and research equipment. New Horizons accommodates a critical mass of academics, research fellows, researchers and PhD students needed to prosecute large-scale interdisciplinary research in the following themes: design tomorrow’s materials for energy conversion, storage and systems sustainability; develop the next generation of computer-aided virtual environments; manufacture materials and processes for advanced manufacturing; and advance biomedical materials, devices and systems. The expertise within New Horizons is helping to answer the technological challenges facing industry in Australia and around the world.
