Building 4.0 CRC invites you to submit one or more proposals for our third quarterly (Q15) Expression of Interest (EOI) round. This new call seeks projects focusing on Adaptive Re-use, Building Retrofits, Zero-Waste Construction and Circularity.  Proposals may encompass pre- and post-build phases of the project lifecycle, and may focus upon the roles and activities of the diverse members of the building value chain. 

Priority will be given to research proposals supported by one or more industry partners who have indicated financial support and the capacity to provide active research collaboration on the project. 

To ensure successful review of your submission, verbal or written confirmation of project funding provided by the nominated industry partner(s) must be recorded on the EOI form. 

If you wish to nominate an existing CRC consortium partner, you are required to contact the university Program Lead at your institution (Prof Tuan Ngo at Melbourne, Dr Duncan Maxwell at Monash, or Dr Sara Omrani at QUT) prior to contacting partners directly. New industry partners not currently part of Building 4.0 CRC are encouraged and welcomed to join your proposal.

If you are an academic staff member at Monash University, the University of Melbourne or QUT, please submit your proposal via this webform:


Submissions are due no later than 11:59pm Friday 1 March 2024 (AEST). Successful applicants will be notified by 5 April 2024. Successful projects are expected to commence research activity by June 2024.
