Data61 Challenges

Data61 Challenges bring together research, industry and government collaborators to develop and deploy data and digital technology platforms for large scale and lasting benefit for Australia.

The Opportunity

Data and emerging digital technologies will play a pivotal role in the transformations that are required in society, the economy and the environment.Australia’s past economic success was driven to a large extent by its primary industries like mining and agriculture. Future economic growth however cannot rely on this.  Over the coming years Australia has a $315 billion economic opportunity enabled by data and digital technologies. From a societal standpoint our growing and aging population, ongoing urbanisation and concerns about our environment all present opportunities for Australia to demonstrate leadership domestically and on the global stage.
