Adelaide at the centre of Australian innovation

Hills Limited is today (31 March 2014) inviting Australian innovators to submit proposals on innovative technology ideas and projects that can be funded, developed and commercialised in the Group’s two new Innovation Centres, due to open in Adelaide on 7 May this year.  
Through a funding partnership with the South Australian Government, $5 million is being invested to open the Lance Hill Design Centre – focused on advancing design innovation – and the D-Shop, with an emphasis on discovering and commercialising digital innovation.
The objective of both Innovation Centres is to retain local design expertise and to collaborate with key educational campuses and the rich pool of independent designers in Australia. 
Through a close collaboration with UniSA, Flinders University and the University of Adelaide, the two centres will support and fund new, innovative next generation technology ideas, projects and start-ups.
The first round of applications opens today (31 March 2014) and closes on 22 April 2014.
Successful applicants will be invited to attend the inaugural Hills Pitch Day at the new Innovation Centres in Hindmarsh on 8 May 2014, where they will be given the opportunity to present their ideas in front of a panel of commercial and academic experts.
