A small population and a sometimes challenging environment mean that invention is our lifeblood.
Our inventions change lives. Like the ground breaking manufacture of penicillin. Not just physical inventions, but social reform. We invented an internationally used system of land ownership; were the first Australian state to allow women to vote and stand for Parliament; and put a value on recycling containers.
We stand out because we’re different. And we’re still pressing ahead with more ideas like becoming the first jurisdiction in Australia to test driverless cars, transitioning to a carbon neutral economy and capitalising on our research into health and ageing.
Our out-of-the-square thinking can become your competitive advantage.
