The Australian Technologies Competition identifies, mentors and profiles Australia’s leading technologies that will enhance industry competitiveness and efficiency both in Australia and globally. The Competition provides mentoring for innovative Australian SMEs and awards those who are best positioned to become global success stories.

The Competition has receives support from the Department of Industry and Science and has so far delivered an economic boost of over 300 times the Government support received. The productivity benefits provided by the technologies coming through this program will also go a long way to meeting the demands set out by Treasurer Joe Hockey in the Intergeneration Report.
