$1 million Innovation Challenge showcases South Australian research and innovation value chain

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are now open for the South Australian Innovation Challenge, which invites businesses to partner with innovators and researchers in developing a product or service that focuses on the Growth State priority sectors of health, medical industries and hi-tech, creating early market advantage and growth opportunities for South Australian businesses.

An initiative of EXCITE, the state’s 10-year science and innovation strategy, the SA Innovation Challenge aims to showcase the state’s research and innovation value chain by identifying solutions to a global problem that have the potential to transform supply chains and propel economic growth in the state.

Up to $1 million in funding is available to an Australian business (or businesses) who can:

  • Demonstrate South Australia’s capability to harness frontier technologies across the research and innovation value chain to develop new products or services that augment the ability of a person at any stage of life to live independently, productively, with dignity and wellbeing, and create early market advantage for South Australian businesses.

Expressions of interest to participate in the SA Innovation Challenge will be open until Friday, 23 April with the successful applicant or applicants to be announced late 2021.
