Department of State Development

Research and development is a major driver of economic growth and competitiveness.

Research and development activity is critical to jobs growth and the emergence of new industries and enterprises.

The Premier’s Research and Industry Fund (PRIF), aims to support South Australia’s research community to compete successfully on a national and global scale.

The fund encourages investment in key science and research areas that have the potential to generate significant economic, social and/or environmental benefits for the State.
