Shaping our future

The science of success: Tasmania and innovation

As technology rapidly evolves, so do the jobs of the future and the needs of our society. To increase educational attainment, facilitate innovation, drive economic growth, and improve regional productivity, STEM must be a central focus for Tasmania.

The new Tasmanian Innovation Network (TasSTEM) will be a catalyst for positive change in Tasmania, creating a network of built-for-purpose facilities, expertise, and innovation, to position Tasmania as a leader in STEM.

TasSTEM consists of the proposed new Science and Technology Precinct in Hobart, and nodes in Inveresk and Newnham in Launceston, and West Park in Burnie.
