Innovation and adoption of new technologies are accelerating at a faster pace than ever before.
In addition to the longest period of uninterrupted economic growth in Australia, we are at the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The unique approach of SFI creates a series of opportunities across faculties, universities and creative industries locally, nationally and internationally. The convergence of disciplines creates unique opportunities for collaboration across the university and facilitated by the Institute.
The disruptive Fourth Industrial Revolution (World Economic Forum 2020) has brought creativity and other soft skills to the top of the list of attributes sought by business and industry.
