Manufacturing News

CSIRO is accepting applications for a new round of its free, ten-week Innovate to Grow program for SMEs, this time focussing on digital technologies and artificial intelligence.

According to a statement from the national science agency on Monday, the program will connect businesses working on solutions in digital technologies and AI with knowledge, resources, and mentors to learn how to advance their project or ideas.  

Applications are open until July 21 for the round, with the first workshop for successful applicants to take place on August 15. Education is delivered online and is self-paced. 

Dr Liming Zhu, CSIRO’s Data61 Research Director for Software and Computational Systems said the program could not be timelier.

“The rise of generative AI and large language models like ChatGPT are rapidly transforming the digital and cyber innovation landscape,” said Zhu.  

“Whether they’re creating knowledge-intensive products or seeking to add innovative features to interact with customers, companies can tap into new growth opportunities thanks to the increasing power of generative AI.”  

Innovate to Grow has been running since 2020, and according to CSIRO “has helped more than 600 early-stage R&D companies access the knowledge and tools required to progress their ideas” so far.
