This discussion paper has been developed by the Australian Workplace Innovation and Social Research Centre (WISeR) at the University of Adelaide in partnership with the Stretton Centre, the Department of Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE), and includes Fraunhofer Gesellschaft as a strategic adviser. It is part of larger response, including the SA Government’s Our Jobs Plan,to the urgent need for rapid diversification of our existing manufacturing sector, particularly in light of the impending closure of GMH and the nation’s entire automotive industry. A key focus must be on retaining key engineering and manufacturing capabilities developed through automotive manufacturing, with accelerated transition of firms into new and growing manufacturing product and market opportunities.
