NERA supports SICA to enable collaboration and innovation in Australia's subsea sector

We’re pleased to announce that NERA will continue to fund and support Subsea Innovation Cluster Australia (SICA) through to 2021.

NERA will provide 50/50 matched funding to SICA during this period, as well as a range of non-financial support, advice and resources.

SICA is a unique business model created by the coming together of Australian companies and research institutions. As this cluster grows, it will expand its focus from Inspection Maintenance and Repair (IMR) to other subsea sectors where the Australian industry displays unique capabilities and competence.

NERA has supported SICA since its formation in early 2018 and is pleased to continue working closely with SICA to grow the Cluster and Australian Subsea Innovation community.

NERA members have recently joined the cluster – GM Francis Norman as an Independent Director on the Board, and Project Manager Tim Duff as a member of the Steering Committee – each contributing to SICA's management and operations.
