The Defence Innovation Partnership is a collaborative initiative of Defence SA, Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) 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 DSTG’s STaR Shots and Next Generation Technologies Fund, and the Defence Innovation Hub.
