Welcome to the LAND FORCES 2022 Innovation Program. This exciting initiative is designed to encourage and reward defence innovation by Australian companies, research institutions and individuals.
The Innovation Program is driven by the AMDA Foundation’s altruistic purpose: to promote the development of aviation and Australia’s industrial, manufacturing and information/communications technology resources in the fields of aviation, aerospace, maritime, defence and security.
At LAND FORCES 2022 the Innovation Program will have two main thrusts: the Innovation Awards and the Innovation Pitchfest.
These Awards were launched in 2012 and the AMDA Foundation has now presented $455,000-worth of SME Innovation Awards and Young Innovator Awards. Awards will be presented in three categories:
Entries for the LAND FORCES 2022 Innovation Awards open on Monday 4 July, 2022
The LAND FORCES 2022 Innovation Awards were created by the AMDA Foundation Limited to recognise and reward innovation by Australian individuals and organisations at the forefront of defence innovation in products, services and business processes in the land domain.
The Pitchfest is a very popular part of the Innovation program at each of our events. Up to 30 ‘pitchers’, selected from DST, Industry and the research and academic sector, are given 3 minutes each to deliver an elevator pitch to a mixed audience of potential partners, customers and venture capital funding sources. The pitchers are trained to deliver a succinct and compelling presentation and prizes are awarded in three categories:
The Pitchfest will take place during LAND FORCES 2022 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC). The pitchers will also be available for one on one meetings with exhibitors and trade visitors who were unable to attend the Pitchfest itself.
The Innovation Pitchfest is organised by the Defence Science Institute (DSI) in Melbourne and its sister organisations in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and Sydney.
