The vision was to create an operating environment — a precinct — that would assist SA businesses in their move up the value chain and into global markets, in an environment for industry to innovate and grow through connection to research and education and through collaboration with each other.
Tonsley’s economic development objectives are the commercialisation of research and the student experience, growth through innovation and showcasing South Australia as the best place to do business.
Tonsley Innovation District’s four focus sectors are health, medical devices and assistive technologies, cleantech and renewable energy, automation, software and simulation, and mining and energy services.
Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT) is an integrated research and development precinct for the resources and advanced technology industries.
A world-class research and development precinct, QCAT is focused on providing the highest standard science, engineering and innovation to the Australian mining, exploration, minerals processing, and manufacturing industries, with particular focus on those resources and industries located in Queensland.
A collaboration between the CSIRO, the Queensland Government, cooperative research centres and R&D industries, QCAT aims to increase the international competitiveness and efficiency of Queensland’s and Australia’s resource-based and related industries.
A number of leading R&D providers have moved to the precinct, attracted by the world-class facilities and potential for collaboration with CSIRO. This has seen the development of a number of key R&D clusters including:
Australia's low emission coal technology and Hydrogen
Advanced minerals processing
The synergy between groups onsite and QCAT’s industry collaborators has also led to the development of two new emerging R&D clusters in niche manufacturing and advanced aeronautical engineering.
The Hydrogen Industry Cluster will drive crucial collaboration across the emerging hydrogen value chain, building the scale and capabilities of existing industry start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs and further leveraging and developing their technologies that will sustain a clean, innovative, competitive and safe hydrogen industry.
The Cluster will also connect cluster members with leading Australian research organisations, supporting the commercialisation of their IP in Australia, creating high value jobs, securing investment and ultimately supporting hydrogen exports driven by a world-leading hydrogen supply chain of technology solutions and services.
The announcement of the Hydrogen Industry Cluster and NERA’s role forms a key part of the National Hydrogen Strategy released by the Council for Australian Governments (COAG).
The National Hydrogen Strategy has been developed by Australian Governments to create the necessary social and regulatory framework that allows the hydrogen industry to expand, and sets out the foundations needed for Australian businesses to develop a vibrant hydrogen industry that benefits all Australians, while meeting safety and community standards. The aim of the strategy is to:
Robotics is used in factories, hospitals, mines, farms and environments such as work sites and natural terrain, where the robots must safeguard themselves while performing non-repetitive tasks and objective sensing as well as self-navigation in random, harsh or dynamic environments.
Robotics includes technologies such as sensors, management and control systems, decision-making, learning and adaptation, and intelligent systems.
