SimWeek Launches with Minister for Innovation



A new industry emerging Software & Simulation

Speaking at the launch of the new Co-Hab Tonsley today, Minister for Manufacturing and Innovation, Hon Kyam Maher MLC, said ‘software and simulation’ is a new sector targeted through the State Government’s investment attraction efforts.

“I am delighted Simulation Australasia, the nation’s peak body for the simulation community, has chosen to relocate to this collaborative working space (known as Co-HAB) managed by Innovyz,” Minister Maher said.

“Simulation Australasia’s work to advance research, development and use of simulation technologies will build the capacity of Tonsley as a pioneering innovation district.

“It will attract other businesses in the software and simulation sector, and will assist like-minded innovators to connect with one another and with commercial services, including Innovyz.

“This builds on existing capability, here at Tonsley, through Flinders University’s School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics and businesses associated with the university’s New Venture Institute – which seeks to foster entrepreneurship in Adelaide.”

Chief Executive of Simulation Australasia, John Stewart said the organisation had been based in the Adelaide CBD for the past four years but the new office at Tonsley (within the Co-HAB managed by Innovyz) would enable it to take full advantage of the dynamic and fluid entrepreneurial business cluster that is Co-HAB.

“The collaborative nature of Co-Hab allows us to, share insights, create relationships, nurture innovation, push beyond conventional thinking.

The opportunity engage with others actively working with a vision to change our society, build greater economic wealth and stability for our State and indeed our Country is remarkable,” he said.
