Australasian Centre for Rail Innovation (ACRI)

The CRC for Rail Innovation is part of the Cooperative Research Centre program, an Australian Government Initiative. The CRC for Rail Innovation is the successor of the first Rail CRC, the Cooperative Research Centre for Railway Engineering and Technologies. The CRC for Rail Innovation was a seven year program, ending 30 June 2014.

As the end date for the program fast approaches, measures have been put in place to ensure that the legacy of both the CRC for Rail Innovation and its predeccesor are maintained.

ACRI has been developed in a joint effort by the CRC for Rail Innovation and the Australasian Railway Association. Vicki Brown has been appointed as Executive Director, and John Anderson as Chairman. During the offical launch at World Congress on Railway Research, Anderson emphasised that 'it is paramount that research into this growing industry continues to develop and involve'.
