The CoE will builds on a world-class infrastructure base, and multiplies the capabilities of three internationally recognised centres of research excellence: Macquarie University (lead institution), Curtin University and the University of Western Australia. The Geological Survey of Western Australia is a Partner Institution. Five overseas nodes led by Partner Investigators in France, China, Canada, Germany and the USA  contribute resources and provide access to a wide variety of expertise and instrumental capabilities.
