Innovation & Collaboration Centre

Providing regional startups with the space to grow

The ICC Whyalla was opened in early 2019 at the University of South Australia's Whyalla Campus underpinned by a grant through the Department of Industry and Skills’ Entrepreneurs’ Programme.

The new innovation hub provides a dynamic pathway for innovative startups to reach their global capacity by providing educational workshops combined with fast gigabit network speeds and injecting expert mentors.

The Whyalla business community will benefit from a suite of training forums led by professionals with a track record of driving a local innovation into an international market. In addition to startup activity the centre will provide support to local businesses looking to grow by providing a hub for their activity, with access to a global network and a series of workshops and other activities to support those businesses.
