Accelerating Research and Development in NSW

Help build a strong, vibrant and high-quality research and development (R&D) sector in NSW to drive future economic growth and create high-value sustainable jobs.

Help shape the future of the NSW R&D sector

We want to focus NSW’s R&D investment on sectors, technologies and applications where we have competitive advantages for future industries.

Collaboration across industry, academia and government is critical for the roadmap design and will provide data-driven and evidence-based policy to guide our work.

Accelerating R&D Action Plan

In January 2021, NSW launched the Turning ideas into jobs: Accelerating R&D in NSW Action Plan. The Action Plan recommends five Priority Actions and 16 Supporting Actions that will accelerate the rate at which ideas are translated into new industries, jobs, products and services, and will help make NSW the R&D leader in Australia and a world-class contributor.
