The SA Labor Government has announced that the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site will be developed in a $350 million plan in part with work spaces for start-up businesses and “future industries”. Targeted industries in this new program will include “artificial intelligence, cyber security, renewable energy and film.” (Advertiser, 20 February 2018 p7:).
The Liberal Opposition announced that they would appoint a “Chief Entrepreneur” and establish a Tech Hub on the old RAH site to focus on “ . . . selected industries including artificial intelligence and energy.” (Advertiser, 26 February 2008 p.6).
No mention in either of these announcements of the inclusion of the electronics industry in the proposed ‘Hub’ but it is improbable that any of the chosen industries could function without a significant reliance on the products, systems and services of the electronics industry.
EIDA is in communication with both parties to ensure that they understand the critical role of the Adelaide electronics industry in the successful operation of the proposed startup ‘Hub.’
Reader comments on the ‘Future Industry Hub’ and the inclusion of our electronics industry would be welcome.
This is great!
This is inspiring!
This is good!
