Hi-Tech Sector Plan 2030
In November 2020, the Government of South Australia released the ‘Hi-Tech Sector Plan 2030’. A summary of the document is below:
South Australia is globally recognised as one of the world’s leading hi-tech centres, with a thriving skilled workforce supporting a diverse and connected ecosystem of businesses, researchers and investors driving economic growth.
Global challenges such as health pandemics, climate change, population growth, resource scarcity, geopolitical conflict and ageing populations also present opportunities to forge new partnerships between research, industry and government.
With recognised scientific, research and industrial excellence in key hi-tech fields, partnered with robust digital capacity and connectivity, South Australia is well positioned to develop effective solutions to these challenges.
Complemented by the entrepreneurship and start-up strategy FIXE and the 10-year science and innovation strategy EXCITE, the Hi-Tech Sector Plan is a 10-year framework that outlines strategic priorities for strengthening South Australia’s research, entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems to create skilled jobs and open new trade and investment opportunities.
