MTPConnect is proud to support the South Australian Innovation Challenge initiative, which will bring together innovators, researchers and businesses to develop cutting-edge products in the health, ageing and disability sectors, creating early market advantage and growth opportunities for South Australian businesses.

With $1 million committed from the Government of South Australia, the SA Innovation Challenge will 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 South Australia.

Proposals must include at least one research collaboration partner such as a university, independent research institute, or government research institute. Consortia applications are welcome subject to the lead applicant’s ability to enter into a funding agreement with the Government of South Australia. Proposals that include co-investment, cash and in-kind, will be favourably received.

For information and guidelines, visit SA Government’s website. Expressions of interest close Friday, 23 April with the successful applicant or applicants to be announced late 2021.

The Innovation Challenge is a key initiative of South Australia’s 10-year science and innovation strategy, EXCITE, which was launched in October 2020.
