Deakin University’s Carbon Nexus is marking its 10 year anniversary.

The facility was established at the Waurn Ponds campus in 2014, with the aim to support the development of carbon fibre products and technologies.

It has since partnered with global companies including Ford, Vestas, PETRONAS and Boeing.
