The A. J. Parker Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Hydrometallurgy was established in July 1992 with a seven year CRC grant. In 1999 it received an additional seven years of funding. The CRC undertook research into alumina, gold and base metals.

On 1 July 2005 the CRC received its third round of funding and became known as the Parker Cooperative Research Centre for Integrated Hydrometallurgy Solutions.


From their Web site, May 2002: "From a small group of researchers working in different organisations with limited collaboration in 1992, the Parker Centre has grown to become Australia's largest hydrometallurgical research organisation. It is a major asset for Australia's minerals industry. The Centre brings together a world-class team of researchers with diverse yet complementary skills, talents and backgrounds who carry out research on behalf of the minerals industry, at the laboratory-scale, at pilot-scale and in industrial plants."
