SCRIPT is a collaboration of local entrepreneurs, businesses, government stakeholders and community members dedicated to growing innovation and business capacity on the coast. Sunshine Coast has a strong innovation ecosystem and this funding allows for greater networking and enables more entrepreneurial activity, resulting in more jobs and a boosted economy.
Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Council and Regional Development Australia (RDA) Sunshine Coast, along with their project partners have been awarded Advance Queensland Regional Innovation funding. The funding was collectively matched by over 30 Sunshine Coast organisations – providing over $1 million over three years to develop innovation and entrepreneurial activities across the region.
Sunshine Coast is fortunate to have an established and active innovation ecosystem and SCRIPT works to increase the connections and relationships across government, educational institutions, entrepreneurs, investors and more.
To bring about these outcomes, activities and resources are aligned to the following key priority areas: Smart Cities, Food and Agribusiness, Health and Wellbeing, Sustainability and Environment and Creative Industries.
