Our Focus Areas

SPARC aspires to be a leading industrial research centre where crazy ideas, and the people who generate them, are given scope to flourish and create new technologies to power tomorrow’s businesses today. With this aspiration in mind, our focus areas reflect the sectors which touch on the major global issues facing us today – water scarcity, energy storage, recycling and sustainable manufacturing, agriculture and food supplies.

We believe that striving to solve these global problems is more than just good business practice, it is how we can fulfill our vision statement ‘to inspire and contribute towards a better world’ and insure the future.
