Gemoc’s organisation involves four interlinked programs: Research, Teaching and Training, Technology Development and Industry Interaction. Basic research strands are supported by parallel applied collaborative research with industry partners: these provide the impetus for technology development. This development is in turn supported by strategic alliances with front-line instrument designers and manufacturers (e.g. Nu Instruments, Agilent Technologies). Teaching and training benefit directly from these new advances. Technology development has been transferred to relevant end-users, applied in postgraduate research programs, and is the essential core that provides the data underpinning the conceptual advances about lithosphere architecture and evolution, core formation and planetary origins in GEMOC.
