What is Health Industries South Australia?
Health Industries South Australia is a government agency, acting as a single point of contact for health and life sciences companies investing in Adelaide. It is staffed by business professionals, allowing the agency to understand what companies need and provide advice on government regulations, help accessing land and introductions to the local life sciences community, including industry, academic and government. The agency's industry experts have also worked extensively within government to modernize policies to make them more business-friendly.
What is the South Australian Government's life sciences strategy?
Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, has been at the heart of Australia's manufacturing base for decades. Now that the economy is evolving, the government is helping the city transition to hi-tech, high value jobs.
The government's plan to grow the life sciences and leverage this hi-tech know-how has three components: building a cluster of world-class life sciences infrastructure-Adelaide BioMed City; developing policies to deliver practical assistance to companies; and creating a government agency dedicated to helping life sciences companies establish in Adelaide-Health Industries South Australia.
