The FBI CRC is one of six applicants that have been shortlisted to deliver new research under the Commonwealth's A$731 million program.
 
The proposed CRC would support Australian research into the battery minerals industry as the sector grows to meet surging demand for batteries to support renewable energy and power electric vehicles.
