About the program

The Future Industries Accelerator, delivered through the University of South Australia’s Future Industries Institute is a $7.5 million South Australian Government investment that supports local industries to build their research and development capacity.

The funding is helping to deliver research and development vouchers, which award up to $100,000 for projects that address priority industry challenges. It also connects small and medium-sized businesses to high-tech infrastructure within the FII and enables industry placements, ensuring research and knowledge is transferred to companies that can capitalise on it and grow high-tech jobs.
