The Major Challenge
Pork is the most consumed meat worldwide with more than 125 million tonnes
to be eaten between 2005 and 2015. In Australia, pork represents 19 per cent of all
meat consumed, with a post farm-gate value of $2.9 billion and the direct generation
of more than 8,000 jobs in regional Australia. With an unprecedented increase in
global focus on food security, energy conservation, climate change, consumer
health and the way food is produced, Australian pork can lead the world as
a unique “food solution”.
The Australian pork industry faces the key challenge of maintaining local production
of high quality food for a reasonable price and for return on production capital
invested, without negatively impacting pig welfare, the environment or the health of
the consumer. Through innovative, collaborative, whole value chain R&D and
education programs within the CRC, the Australian pork industry will meet this
challenge by facilitating production that is efficient and ethical with minimal need for
sow confinement in stalls or crates (or widespread use of antibiotic medications); and
by delivering key nutrients safely, and enhancing the health and well-being of
consumers. The CRC will also utilise revolutionary feed sources and effluent
management systems resulting in emissions of less than 1kg of CO2 per kg of pork
produced, and contribute significantly to Australia’s economic growth and food
security without drawing on the ecological capital of other parts of the world.
Research Programmes
The CRC undertakes the following
research programs:
1. Reduced confinement of sows
and piglets;
2. Herd health management;
3. Healthy pork consumption;
4. Carbon conscious nutrient inputs
and outputs;
5. Improving sow reproduction; and
6. Nutritional manipulations to enhance
the performance and feed efficiency
of growing pigs.
Areas of Research Expertise
Reproductive and lactational physiology;
pig behavior; welfare and management;
pig nutrition; veterinary science;
quantitative and molecular genetics;
disease diagnostics; supply chain
management and carcase analysis; meat
science; human nutrition; isotope
analysis in traceability systems; on-farm
production of algal feedstock; plant
breeding and genetics; near infrared
analysis of feed ingredients; in vivo
analysis of feed ingredients; grain
processing; effluent management;
CO2 mitigation.

The Major Challenge
The CRC for Sheep Industry Innovation (Sheep CRC) will continue the technological
transformation of the Australian sheep industry by developing and delivering new
tools to enhance animal wellbeing and productivity, to introduce a quality-based
value chain for sheep meat and facilitate widespread adoption of DNA-based genetic
technologies. Full genome sequencing undertaken by the Sheep CRC will improve the
rate of genetic gain in the national sheep flock by delivering genomic tests that have
higher accuracies, provide for more flexible breeding objectives, and are useful for a
broader range of sheep breeds. New test systems, at a significantly lower cost, are
anticipated to lead to increased levels of use.
Sheep wellbeing and productivity will be enhanced through the evaluation of the
genetic parameters, environmental factors and animal conditions that contribute to
the risk of compromised wellbeing. Risk assessment, in conjunction with auto
monitoring systems, will provide the real time information required to make effective
management decisions to maintain wellbeing, reduce on-farm mortality and improve
productivity. The Sheep CRC will also work with its supply chain partners to improve
the lamb carcase grading system, so that it will provide the basis for quality-based
trading and accurate feedback for producers and breeders. A cuts-based grading
system will assist accurate assessment of value for both heavier lean lamb and
yearling carcases for export.
The importance of meeting these challenges is recognised by all levels of industry,
which are involved throughout the Sheep CRC’s research and delivery programs.
Sheep breeders, commercial producers, processors, service providers, supermarkets
and research agencies have all committed resources to the five-year plan.
Research Programmes
The CRC undertakes the following
research programs:
1. Enhanced sheep wellbeing
and productivity;
2. Quality-based sheepmeat
value chains; and
3. Faster affordable genetic gain.
Areas of Research Expertise
Areas of expertise include animal
genetics and genomics; meat, marketing
and supply chain management; animal
welfare and management; education and
training in livestock sciences.

The Major Challenge
Dairy is already a major export industry for Australia and it has the opportunity to
become a national success by meeting the growing demand for high-quality food in
Asia. The challenge is to grasp this opportunity while operating in a production
environment that is economically and climatically volatile. This volatility is expected to
continue and will affect all dairy industries throughout the world. If Australia can
evolve its production system so it can grow irrespective of the prevailing economic
and climatic conditions, the Australian dairy industry could double in size over the
next 15 years.
Dairy Futures CRC is addressing this challenge by inventing improvements to
pastures and cattle that reduce the cost of production, reduce farmers’ exposure to
external price shocks, and allow for greater levels of production. Dairy Futures CRC
has multiple innovation areas relating to the selective breeding of both pasture and
cattle which will be achieved through the active involvement of dairy farmers and
genetic supply industries. Ultimately, this will create a positive future for Australian
dairy farmers and companies that supply products and services to the dairy industry.

The Major Challenge
Growth in global trade, travel and tourism and changes in climate and agricultural
enterprises expose Australia’s plant industries to ever-increasing biosecurity threats
from devastating plant pests. At risk are food security, $14 billion per annum in crop
exports (ABARE, 2010), the environment, sustainability of regional communities and,
indirectly, human health and safety.
Plant pests can have catastrophic impact. The 2010 incursion of myrtle rust, which
attaches native plants, emphasises the vulnerability of the Australian flora and unique
landscape. If red fire ant was allowed to spread the agricultural, environmental and
human impacts are estimated at $8.9 billion by 2041 (Natural Resource Management
Ministerial Counsel, 2008).
In light of such risks, the need to strengthen Australia’s biosecurity shield through an
effective national and regional approach is recognised by government, industry and
the community. The major challenge for the Plant Biosecurity CRC (PBCRC) is to
develop and deploy knowledge and tools to provide the scientific support essential
for safeguarding Australia from the economic, environmental and social
consequences of damaging pests.
Research Programmes
The CRC undertakes the following
research programs:
1. Early warning;
2. Effective detection and response;
3. Safeguarding trade; and
4. Secure future.
Areas of Research Expertise

The Major Challenge
Over the last 30 years, the average grade of Australian orebodies being mined has
halved, while the waste removed to access the minerals has more than doubled. This
trend is repeated worldwide, and is driving massive increases in energy consumption
by the mining sector. In the last decade, Australian mines incurred a 70 per cent rise in
energy use, and a 40 per cent decline in productivity over the same period. At the
same time, growing constraints on energy, water and carbon have seen costs rise
dramatically.
The CRC for Optimising Resource Extraction is addressing this challenge by
facilitating a transformation of the Australian mining industry and dramatically
improving the productivity of operations. Working with the Industry to apply
system-based analysis methods to increase unit metal productivity, this work has
resulted in an integrated operational solution and system-value approach built around
Grade Engineering®, a concept that will contribute to the ongoing benefit of the
Australian mining industry.

The Major Challenge
The Deep Exploration Technologies CRC was established to address the most
significant challenge to the future of the minerals industry in Australia, i.e. the
reduction in the mineral resources inventory due to high production rates and low
mineral exploration success. Mineral resources constitute around 50 per cent of the
nation’s exports. However, 80 per cent of Australia’s mineral production is from mines
discovered pre-1980. The vast majority of Australia’s existing mines are located where
prospective basement rocks outcrop. To ensure the future of the minerals industry,
new technologies must be developed to explore to greater depths in the vast areas of
Australia’s deep, covered prospective basement.

The Major Challenge
The challenge for the rail manufacturing supply chain is to integrate with global
supply chains, and national and international end-users. The Rail Manufacturing CRC
will facilitate relationships and provide a platform for wider collaboration to integrate
and strengthen the supply chain through industry-to-R&D and business-to-business
interactions.
The rail industry has not collaborated on manufacturing or technology development
to any great extent and as a result the supply chain is very fragmented. This limits
local firms expanding into overseas markets and associated global supply chains. The
On Track to 2040 Technology Roadmap was the voice of industry, government and
the National Innovation System that identified the technology trends and innovation
investment priorities for Australian industry.
Using the roadmap, the Rail Manufacturing CRC will share the risk involved in the
development of technology; assist in developing networks across the supply chains;
increase industry’s competitive global position and increase the depth of industry
capability with both strong Australian industry participants and international
participants. This will ensure that Australian products and know-how created from the
Rail Manufacturing CRC outputs are integrated into high growth global supply chains.

The Major Challenge
The Southern Ocean stores more anthropogenic heat and carbon dioxide than any
other latitude band, slowing the rate of climate change, but the ability of the Southern
Ocean to continue to provide such services is unknown. The response of the Antarctic
ice sheet to ocean warming is not understood, limiting the reliability of projections of
future sea level rise. Changes in the environment, including warming, acidification,
and changes in sea ice, will drive change in Southern Ocean ecosystems, with
implications for conservation and biodiversity. However, the rates of environmental
change and the ecosystem response are still too poorly understood to inform
management decisions. Australian climate is strongly influenced by what happens to
the south of Australia. The climate record contained in Antarctic ice cores provides a
unique record of these connections and helps put recent changes into context. The
high policy relevance of these issues underscores the significance of Antarctic and
Southern Ocean research for the nation.

The Major Challenge
Working across the domains of the finance and health industries, the Capital Markets
CRC brings together expertise in data management, mining and visualisation with
data and expertise from industry partners in Australia and internationally to advance
knowledge and to build operational technology solutions.
Research is aimed at various industry value chains and will address two critically
important social objectives. The first is to underpin the efficiency and integrity of
securities markets, a goal critical to the retirement savings of millions of Australians, a
large part of which are invested in these markets. The second objective is to enhance
the effectiveness of health expenditure, which represents the single largest challenge
to national budgets in Australia and across the world.
The two domains are integrated through the Capital Markets CRC’s Market Quality
Framework which identifies and then enables measurement of the factors required to
achieve fair and efficient markets.

The Major Challenge
The major challenge for the CRC for Cancer Therapeutics will be to discover effective
new drugs for major cancers and improve the lives of Australian children with cancer
through tailored treatment. Cancer is the leading cause of death and disability in
Australia and of disease-related death in Australian children. Despite better diagnosis
and initial treatment, the majority of cancer deaths result from recurrent metastatic
disease. Principally designed to stop tumour growth, new cancer drugs are usually
first tested and used in patients dying of advanced metastatic cancer and inevitably
have limited impact on survival but are of a very high cost.
To address these challenges, the CRC for Cancer Therapeutics will discover drug
candidates that target cancer recurrence and establish new clinical trial models
enabling effective testing of drugs to prevent cancer recurrence. Cancer Therapeutics
CRC will also develop a personalised-therapy platform to improve use of new and
existing drugs for paediatric cancer patients.
Research Programmes
The CRC undertakes the following
research programs:
1. Drugs for metastatic and
recurrent cancer;
2. Clinical trial designs; and

The Major Challenge
Australia has an estimated 160,000 potentially contaminated sites. The majority
of these are in urban areas, where they may pose risk to humans and prevent the use
of otherwise productive, high-value real estate. Contaminated sites in rural and
outback areas also pose threats to the environment, crops and livestock. The owners
of contaminated sites – such as resources companies, as well as federal, state and
local government – face high and growing costs to manage and clean up hazardous
sites. The challenge for the CRC for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of
the Environment is to work with end users to develop technologies that can be used
to cost-effectively remediate contaminated sites. At the same time, the CRC is
working with government to harmonise Australia’s contaminated site policies and
guidelines, to ensure that assessment, clean-up and management are as efficient
and effective as possible.
Research Programmes
The CRC undertakes the following
research programs:

Climate change is a key challenge of our time. Urgent action must be taken to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions in order to avoid the likely dangerous effects of climate
change.
Many of the potential low cost greenhouse gas emissions (carbon) saving
opportunities are known to be in the built environment. Yet past experience suggests
that market failure and other barriers will mean uptake of these opportunities will
often not occur.
The aim of the CRC is to provide government and industry with technological and
policy tools to overcome identified market barriers preventing adoption of cost
effective low carbon products and services, while maintaining industry
competitiveness and improving quality of life.

Mental illness accounts for 25 per cent of the health burden in Australia, and this is
growing. There are currently no reliable early diagnostic markers available for the
detection of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
diseases, or psychoses such as schizophrenia and mood disorders.
The CRC for Mental Health undertakes research to identify and validate biomarkers
for the early detection and treatment of neurodegenerative disorders and psychoses.
We then work with our partner end users to ensure that new techniques and
approaches are integrated into medical and health care practice.
The biomarkers we seek could be specific cells, molecules, genes, gene products,
hormones, or subtle brain image changes. Once validated, biomarkers will enhance
opportunities for:
..disease risk assessment;
..early disease diagnosis;
..monitoring disease progression; and
..monitoring responses to drug therapy.

The Major Challenge
The CRC for Remote Economic Participation is a public good research centre which
delivers solutions to address the social and economic disadvantage in remote
Australia. Residents of remote Australia have lower incomes, employment rates and
educations levels, as well as poorer health outcomes than residents of the rest of
Australia. These challenges can also build opportunity. Remote Australia generates
more than half of Australia’s export income and has a higher proportion of small
businesses per capita than elsewhere in the country. Finding the solutions to this
apparent contradiction involves an understanding of the complex interplay of
economic, environmental and societal factors. The CRC contributes to the Australian
Government’s national ‘Closing The Gap’ priority policy, which aims to halve the
unemployment, welfare and other differences between Aboriginal people in remote
areas and the rest of Australia.

The Major Challenge
Oral diseases – dental decay, periodontal disease (disease of the gum tissue) and oral
cancer - are among the most prevalent diseases in the Australian community.
Almost 60 per cent of 14-year-olds in Australia have had decay in their permanent
teeth. More than one in five Australian adults over the age of 65 have lost all their
natural teeth, leaving them vulnerable to further health problems. More than 60,000
Australians a year are hospitalised for preventable oral health conditions. The cost to
the Australian economy of oral diseases is $8.4 billion a year (Australian Institute of
Health and Welfare). A growing body of evidence links oral disease to other health
conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, kidney disease, inflammatory
diseases and some cancers.
The Oral Health CRC brings together world-class scientific and clinical research teams
with Australian manufacturers and established global marketers and distributors to

The Major Challenge
Modern societies are highly dependent on services delivered most efficiently from
space. These include communications, navigation, resource management, earth
observation and climate change monitoring.
Global investment in space assets is now around $900 billion. These assets face
serious risk from space debris collision. Collisions involve impact velocities of over
20,000 km/hour making even 5 mm debris lethal. Only 30,000 of the 300,000 debris
population exceeding 5 mm can currently be monitored. Already several satellites are
damaged or destroyed each year, adding to the debris burden and increasing the risk
of an avalanche of collisions.
This is a global problem but Australia has amongst the highest space dependencies in
the world due to its size and emphasis on technology to overcome low population.
Leveraging its location, size, climate and astronomical technologies, Australia became
a world leader in optical space tracking 40 years ago.
Collisions can be avoided by moving a satellite to safety, provided the debris orbits
are accurately known. New technology is required to track 10 times the amount of
space debris, for objects 10 times smaller and with 10 times the existing orbit
accuracy in the [future] collision zone.
Research Programmes
The CRC undertakes the following
research programs:
1. Tracking, characterising and
identifying objects in orbit;
2. Orbit determination and predicting
behaviours of space objects;
3. Space asset management; and
4. Preservation of the space
environment.
Areas of Research Expertise
Satellite and space debris detection,
tracking, characterization and
identification; orbit determination and
propagation; space object catalogue
development and maintenance; adaptive
optics for space object imagery and
beam formation; space object collision
prediction and avoidance; and highpower,
high-beam-quality pulsed and

Billions of people around the world need some form of vision correction. Myopia
affects around 1.5 billion people, with a significantly increased risk of blindness
associated with high levels of the condition. Presbyopia affects more than one billion
people, and over 625 million people are unnecessarily blind or vision impaired,
including a disproportionate number of Indigenous Australians, because they don’t
have access to basic eye care. Conditions like diabetic retinopathy and other blinding
eye diseases are evading detection because of human resource deficiencies and
limitations of current technology.
The Vision CRC is addressing the major challenges of significant vision impairment
and eye health issues by slowing the progress of myopia; solving problems related to
ocular and contact lens discomfort; elimination of presbyopia and cataract through
the use of biocompatible implant materials for permanent vision correction; improved
skills and knowledge for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers;
integrated models of vision care delivery for remote and indigenous communities,
and development of an intelligent retinal camera for rapid detection of blinding eye
disease.

Introduction
THE FINNISH MARINE INDUSTRY
Structure and characteristics
The whole Maritime Cluster in Finland impacts on various economic sectors, involves hundreds of companies and public sector organisations with tens of thousands employees. The cores of the cluster include seafaring, marine industry and port operations. Many Finnish maritime cluster companies provide products and services to several maritime segments both internationally and in Finland. As a whole some 600 key companies operate in the range of maritime businesses in Finland.
Picture: Key segments in the whole Finnish Maritime Cluster and the Marine Industry (marked dark blue).
The Finnish Marine Industry consists of shipyards, shipyard suppliers, marine engineering and consulting companies, different systems and services suppliers and cargo handling equipment providers. Finnish shipyards produce world¡¦s biggest cruise ships, ferries, technically demanding special vessels and icebreakers. Also advanced offshore platforms, constructions and technical solutions are other fronts of the Finnish marine industry. The production processes are supported by a network of Finnish-based companies including different kinds of engineering firms and systems, services and materials suppliers. Many of them do business also globally. It¡¦s also noteworthy that the largest cargo handling equipment suppliers are Finnish.
Marine industry is one of the most internationalized and global business branches in the Finnish economy. Drivers of the marine business networks are mainly global multinational companies,

Picture: Key company groups operating in the Finnish Marine Industry.
Economic impact and recent developments
The influence of the whole Finnish maritime cluster is strong on the Finnish economy. The combined annual turnover exceeds 10 billion euros and the whole cluster employs some 40 000 people in Finland. The respective figures for the marine industry are some 6 billion euros and 20 000 employees.
The industry has witnessed a strong general growth trend throughout the first decade of 2000. But just in the turn of 2010 also the Finnish marine industry suffered losses due to the global economic turbulence. Especially investments and newbuilding orders were negatively affected by the related downturn. Since 2010 the stabilizing world economy together with major orders especially in the shipbuilding segment has again strengthened the industry¡¦s performance. The influence was first experienced via recovery of international demand especially benefiting the core international companies. More recently also domestic demand has livened up.
The business confidence index of the firms in Finnish marine industry shows strong signs of positive development for the year 2012. The trend is evident in all major indexed fields: general growth, international orders, domestic orders and profitability.

Key markets, products and services
Finnish marine industry serves global markets. The most important markets for the Finnish industry are:
„h Shipping
„h Leisure
„h Ports and terminals
„h Offshore energy production and exploitation
For the merchant shipping markets the Finnish marine industry companies provide ship design, ship construction, ship repair, ship power and propulsion, on-board cargo solutions, cargo handling equipment and systems, engineering, design, life-cycle maintenance solutions and ship operation technology. As this market is to large extent outside Finland, Finnish companies operating in the field are mainly big or middle-sized. However, a growing number or Finnish SMEs has also entered the international market.
For the leisure market the specialization of the Finnish marine industry is cruise and passenger vessel design and shipbuilding. It¡¦s carried out by bringing together project management, engineering, ICT, ship operating systems, materials and components supply, ship power and propulsion, cabin modules, outfitting, repairs and retrofits. The major customers are worldwide operating cruise ship companies as well as regionally operating passenger ferry companies. Traditionally the production and the company networks have been localized in Finland but more and more business expands into global markets as well.
For the ports and terminals the Finnish marine industry provides cargo handling and lifting equipment, cargo monitoring solutions, port and terminal automation, maintenance services, ICT, engineering and consulting. Again the market is truly global. For offshore energy production and exploitation the Finnish companies provide oil and gas drilling constructions and structures, engineering and design, building of special ships, arctic technology, components and materials, ship power and propulsion systems, maintenance services, cargo handling technology and project management. This market is also global involving major international companies but also specialized Finnish SMEs.
The future market expansion for the Finnish marine industry is expected to be highest on the offshore market. Offshore-related offerings include the arctic technology, ports and terminals, ship on-board cargo solutions, special vessels segments (supply vessels, icebreakers) and horizontally in systems and solutions needed for energy efficiency and environmentally friendly maritime operations.
In practice, all of the largest marine industry companies operate globally. From the extended group of 200 major companies within the Finnish marine industry some 80 percent does business internationally. This includes exporting goods from Finland to customers abroad, sourcing from other countries, joint venturing outside Finland and placing of local production or sales units outside Finland. However, some 15 percent of the core companies have personnel outside Finland.
Localisation of the Finnish companies¡¦ foreign units go hand in hand with companies¡¦ markets: the majority of the foreign units are in Germany, Russia, Norway, China, Italy and Singapore.

Contacting Your Automotive Manufacturer
If you have a problem with a car purchased from a local dealer, first try to work
it out with the dealer. If the problem is not resolved, contact the manufacturer’s
regional or national office. Ask for the Consumer Affairs Office.
If you are still unsuccessful, consider contacting the automotive dispute
resolution resources listed at the end of this section. The method used to
resolve your dispute may be mediation, arbitration, or conciliation. Decisions
of arbitrators are usually binding and must be accepted by both the customer
and the business. Ask for a copy of the rules of the program before you file
your case. See page 55 for an overview of dispute resolution programs.
A local or state consumer agency (p. 112) could also be a useful resource in
resolving problems with your vehicle. If you have a new vehicle, be sure to ask
whether you have any protection under a state “lemon” law (p. 10).

Contacting Automotive Dispute Resolution Programs
An automotive dispute resolution program is another resource to consult if you need to solve a problem with your car’s manufacturer or dealership.
If you have been unable to reach an agreement with your manufacturer, consider contacting the automotive dispute resolution resources listed here.
The method used to resolve your dispute may be mediation, arbitration, or conciliation. Decisions of arbitrators are usually binding and must be accepted by both the customer and the business. Ask for a copy of the rules of the program before you file your case.
Read the contract that you signed when you purchased your car. Manufacturers and dealers may have included a clause that requires you to agree to mandatory arbitration, waiving your right to sue or settle a disagreement in a court of law.
