DST SCINDICATE 2019 event ‘partnering for impact’

Defence Science and Technology (DST) has called for expressions of interest to participate in its premier collaboration event, SCINDICATE 2019, to be held at its Edinburgh laboratory in Adelaide.

DST's popular annual partnerships event is ready to rock and roll again this year at Defence’s largest science and technology laboratory in South Australia. The theme for SCINDICATE 2019 is 'Partnering for Impact'.


Industry, universities and research agencies are invited to participate in the two-day activities, which will include technology demonstrations, business match-ups, workshops, briefings and laboratory tours, as well as opportunities for networking and forging new collaborations.

A Next Generation Technologies Fund showcase will also be a special feature of the event. Together with the Defence Innovation Hub and the Centre for Defence Industry Capability, these three form the integrated Defence innovation system.

With an investment of $730 million over the decade to June 2026, the Next Generation Technologies Fund is a forward-looking program focusing on research and development in emerging and future technologies for the 'future Defence Force after next'.

The Next Generation Technologies Fund is focused on the following nine priority areas, as determined by the Defence White Paper 2016:



  • Integrated intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance;
  • Space capabilities;
  • Enhanced human performance;
  • Medical countermeasure products;
  • Multi-disciplinary material sciences;
  • Quantum technologies;
  • Trusted autonomous systems;
  • Cyber; and
  • Advanced sensors, hypersonics and directed energy capabilities

The name SCINDICATE abbreviates science (SC) and industry (IND) and is pronounced syndicate, meaning a group of individuals or organisations combined to promote a common interest; in other words, partnership and collaboration.
