On 6 and 7 August 2014, researchers from the University of Queensland, Professor David StJohn and Associate Professor Kazuhiro Nogita, joined University of Wollongong and BlueScope Steel researchers to further develop project plans and directions in Program C – Innovative Coating Technologies.

The visit included tours of relevant BlueScope Steel plant and laboratory facilities and presentations from a number of researchers within the group. For some this was an opportunity to meet their collaborators in person for the first time. Further meetings are planned to follow this month’s official launch of the Steel Research Hub in Canberra on 4 September.
