Representatives from tertiary institutions including the University of South Australia, the University of Adelaide, Flinders University and TAFE SA will also take part in the event.

Representing the defence and space sector are primes including BAE Systems, Babcock, Boeing Defence Australia, Lockheed Martin and Naval Group.

High-tech advanced manufacturing will be a key focus as the defence and shipbuilding industries transition into this futuristic area.

South Australia will be home to an $89 billion continuous build program of naval shipbuilding projects, including Australia’s Future Submarines, Future Frigates and Offshore Patrol Vessels, which together are expected to create around 5,200 jobs by the mid-to-late-2020s.

Those interested in attending the event can register here.
