Powerful collaborations for South Australia

The Defence Innovation Partnership is a collaborative initiative of Defence SA, Defence Science and Technology (DST) and South Australia's three public universities, the University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the University of South Australia. 

Bringing together a world-class collective of thinkers, practitioners and experts in defence research and development, each of the partners is committed to a model of genuine collaboration between governments, industries and universities.

We help the South Australian research and development community meet the needs of Defence by navigating the path to the creation of new technologies that transform and inspire.

The Defence Innovation Partnership’s objectives are aligned with the South Australian state priorities, the priorities of DST’s Next Generation Technologies Fund, and the Defence Innovation Hub.

With deep networks in defence, industry and research, the Defence Innovation Partnership team proactively pursues opportunities to build defence collaborations.

The Advisory Board brings together some of Australia's leading research and development experts to support the team in achieving the objectives of the partnership.

Comprising representatives of each member party of the Defence Innovation Partnership, the Research Working Group provides insight and links into Australia‚Äôs research and development community.

The member parties demonstrate a commitment to working collaboratively to develop South Australia's innovation ecosystem.
