Robotics and automation have the potential to generate enormous social, economic and environmental benefits for Australia.
Investing in robotics and automation can:
- help address national challenges
- revitalise Australian industries and manufacturing
- provide safe and fulfilling jobs for Australian workers.
We are seeking input on a future vision for Australia’s robotics sector.
Your feedback on the National Robotics Strategy discussion paper will help support the responsible production and adoption of robotics and automation technologies.
You can also have your say at one of our national workshops (see below).
Consultation closes 7 May 2023.
We are hosting a series of in-person and online workshops to inform the development of the National Robotics Strategy.
Stakeholders and the wider community are invited to share their views.
The in-person National Robotics Strategy workshops will be held nationwide in April and May 2023. These workshops will focus on stakeholders’ experiences and the vision for robotics and automation in Australia.
