Research and innovation

'Precipice', 2017

AFTRS develops applied research projects that explore technology for communication and art, the outcomes of which inform industry and impact the broader economy. By drawing on the connectedness between the arts, technology, innovation and business, these projects engage audiences with a future-focused approach to entertainment, thus transforming ideas into commercial realities.

AFTRS’ research and innovation projects map against the four pillars of the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA):

  • Culture and capital
  • Collaboration
  • Talent and skills
  • Government as exemplar
