On 17 March 2016 the Victorian Government launched the Future Industries Sector Strategies, together with the Sector Growth Program.

The following areas have been identified as the priority sectors with potential for remarkable growth – the sectors in which Victoria is uniquely poised to lead the world:

  •    Medical technology and pharmaceuticals
  •    New energy technologies
  •    Transport, defence and construction technologies
  •    Food and fibre
  •    International education
  •    Professional services.

The Sector Growth Program provides grant funding for Victorian-based projects that align with future industries sector strategies.

The program comprises two funding streams: up to $100,000 is available for scoping, planning and feasibility studies, and up to $1 million is available to implement projects aligned with the future industries sector strategies that will generate new jobs and increase competitiveness of Victorian businesses.
