Science Research Development - about us

The Antarctic Tasmania and Science Research Development (ATSRD) business unit within the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts is committed to the strategic development and sustainable growth of the science research sector in Tasmania.

Tasmania is fortunate to possess a diverse and substantial science research sector, attracting around $500 million in investment annually. The sector contributes significantly to economic activity, delivers knowledge, products and services that help other sectors to grow, and seeks to solve problems that affect the Tasmanian community’s quality of life.

This sector has the potential for further growth as Tasmania possesses a number of competitive advantages in terms of natural assets, existing science research capability and liveability benefits that make the state an ideal location for Australian and international investment in science research. 

To facilitate the expansion of the science research sector in Tasmania, the Tasmanian Government has released Reaching our potential: developing Tasmania’s science research capability, a sector development strategy under the  Economic Development Plan.

The Science Research Advisory Committee (SRAC) was established to provide high level sector advice on science research issues for the Economic Development Plan.  SRAC has been instrumental in the development and finalisation of Reaching our potential and will continue to provide advice in the implementation of the strategy . Read more about SRAC.

As part of Reaching our potential, ATSRD supports the sector through programs that attract investment, recognise excellence and achievements in science research and stimulate information sharing and collaboration between researchers and industry.

ATSRD is the contact point for all individuals and organisations whose activities will help to achieve these goals. Email: science@development.tas.gov.au
