Outcomes and impact of the case
This session will be led by UniSA through a presentation that will:

i. introduce the background and objectives of the Future Industries Accelerator, including the approach of staff working within the Future Industries Institute who combine research excellence with practice and spend their time working within both the University and partner contexts to deliver transformative outcomes quickly and effectively.
ii. discuss the strategy and approach employed to implement the program, particularly the mission of FII to work differently to many other research agencies and to develop strategic programs and initiatives that make it easy for the business community to connect with the research that it does and the skills and infrastructure that it has;
iii. provide evidence of the outcomes and impact delivered through the program; and
iv. share our experiences and lessons learnt throughout the early stages of the program, particularly as they relate to enhancing industry-university collaboration in the South Australian context.
