Launch of the NSW Defence Innovation Network

The NSW government, in conjunction with industry and a number of institutional partners, has officially launched the NSW Defence Innovation Network (DIN) to increase the state’s position as a defence industry hub.

Officially launched by NSW Minister for Trade and Industry Niall Blair and Assistant Minister for Defence David Fawcett, DIN will provide a range of support and collaboration opportunities for the defence industry in NSW.

The network provides a single door contact point for trouble free access to member universities in NSW. DIN also facilitates easy links to appropriate skills and capabilities to drive innovation and technology development towards commercially focused solutions for defence.

DIN brings together key industry and education institutions, including the University of Sydney, the University of NSW, Macquarie University, University of Wollongong, University of Newcastle, Western Sydney University and University of Technology Sydney to provide support and collaboration across a variety of capability areas.
