1 Industry s Initiative

2 Long term prosperity will depend on the ability of Australian industry to be more innovative, productive and competitive in order to capture the opportunities from a growing global economy. Australians are famous for having great ideas and new inventions, and turning these into profitable commercial realities. The Industry s Initiative builds on this strength by focusing on areas of competitive strength and strategic priority to drive innovation, productivity and competitiveness. The Initiative will drive excellence, not dependence and create an economy that ensures Australia s ongoing prosperity through fostering growth in smart, high value and export focused industries. The Initiative will identify opportunities to reduce regulatory burden, increase collaboration and commercialisation, improve capabilities to engage with international markets and global supply chains, and enhance management and workforce skills in key sectors. The Initiative is ongoing with $248 million in government funding over four years from Significant industry investment is also anticipated. s are being established to deliver the Initiative in six areas of competitive strength and strategic priority. These are: Advanced Manufacturing Cyber Security s are not-for-profit companies, led by a strategic Board of industry experts who will oversee the operation of the. Whilst the s each have physical locations they are not constrained by physical boundaries. s are tasked with actively creating networks across Australia to support the productivity and competitiveness of the sectors. s will lift the levels of collaboration between businesses, industry, research organisations and government in order to better capitalise on the excellent research and development undertaken and scientific knowledge generated in Australia. Each will set a long-term strategy for its sector. This will be outlined in its Sector Competitiveness Plan, which will highlight opportunities and drive activities to boost productivity by increasing collaboration and commercialisation, improving management and workforce skills, reducing red tape and assisting the sector to engage in international markets. The s will work closely with state and territory programmes and industry associations to ensure activities delivered by each complements existing activities and services, and to leverage their networks, expertise and experience. Food and Agribusiness Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals Mining Equipment, Technology and Services Oil, Gas and Energy Resources 2

4 Industry Growth Centre Strategic Objectives Each will undertake its own activities and leverage external programmes to grow the productivity, competitiveness and innovative capacity of their sector. A key activity of each is to set a long-term strategy for their sector, outlined in its Sector Competitiveness Plan. Their plans and activities will focus on: identifying regulations that are unnecessary or over-burdensome and impede the sector s ability to grow, and suggesting possible reforms improving engagement between research and industry, and within industry, to achieve stronger coordination and collaboration of research, and stronger commercialisation outcomes improving capability to engage with international markets and access global supply chains improving management and workforce skills. Sector Competitiveness Plans will also include advice to government on reducing the regulatory burden within the sectors through Regulation Reform Agendas. Each will work with industry, governments, and other stakeholders to identify specific, practical and beneficial regulation reform opportunities leading to improved competitiveness and productivity in its sector. The agendas will reveal pathways for reform that will reduce regulatory burden at the firm level, providing businesses with the flexibility they need to adapt to the rapidly changing economic environment. Alignment with Other Policies and Programmes s are central to placing innovation and science at the centre of industry policy, helping to leverage the government s $9.7 billion annual investment in science and innovation, and lifting the levels of collaboration between businesses, industry, research organisations and government. s will help align industry and innovation policy and programmes, including CSIRO and Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs), to contribute to improving the productivity, competitiveness and innovative capacity of their sectors. s will receive considerable support from CRCs which will undertake industryfocused research that contributes to the aims of the s. The s will also be supported by the Entrepreneurs Programme, which will facilitate business capability improvements and the commercialisation of ideas in response to opportunities and challenges identified by the s strategic plan at the firm level. The combination of these programmes will create an environment to build the capability of firms and drive innovation by improving the levels of collaboration between industry, researchers and governments. Through Sector Competitiveness Plans, Growth Centres will also develop annual Industry Knowledge Priorities to inform the research sector of industry needs. These will inform areas of work for institutions such as CSIRO, universities and other publicly funded research organisations. 4
