Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, announced last week that Dassault Systemes, an international aerospace and defence company, will open an office at the University of Adelaide campus—the first office to be co-located with an Australian university.

The office will be established under a collaboration agreement signed between University Vice Chancellor, Professor Peter Rathjen, and Dassault Systemes Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations Asia/Oceania, Sylvain Laurent.

“This agreement is part of a growing partnership between Dassault and the University,” Minister Pyne said. The University of Adelaide has long and well-established links with Defence as its largest research partner with 157 agreements negotiated since July 2014, valued at $13 million.

“It is also involved in projects under the Next Generation Technologies Fund, conducting ten early-stage research projects in areas relating to intelligence systems, trusted autonomy, autonomous tactical networks and unmanned vehicles.
