Innovation is the long-term solution for developed economies seeking sustained economic prosperity and improved quality of life.
Innovation is how we implement new ideas to create new value. In South Australia we have all the ingredients for innovation success: a strong research community, entrepreneurial businesses, significant creative communities, effective government, high levels of education and an ability to collaborate, all supported by dependable infrastructure and existing links to national and global markets.
The Department of State Development is supporting South Australian businesses to build this capacity in an ever changing global context.
