Industry 5.0 complements and extends upon the current 4th industrial revolution and STEM focus by specifically placing research and innovation at the service of the transition to a sustainable, human-centric and resilient Australian industry.

Research and innovation and the associated cross-functional skills required are fundamental to, and supported by, Statistics, Systems thinking, Sustainability and STEM (SSSS) skills… the focus of this initiative.
