1. Advocacy for improved transport: We will continue to work with all three levels of government to drive investment in improved transport infrastructure and smart-transport solutions. 2. Leveraging investment in the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion: The RDA is supporting the development of potential airport freight opportunities and export clusters at the Sunshine Coast Airport in partnership with the local Food and Agribusiness Network (FAN). 3. Supporting regional innovation, including leveraging the Sunshine Coast International Broadband Submarine Cable: We will identify and communicate the regional benefits of the submarine cable and the economic opportunities that it provides while continuing to promote the Coast as a destination for entrepreneurs. RDA Sunshine Coast also has a leadership role in the Sunshine Coast Regional Innovation Pipeline Team (#SCRIPT) project. RDA Sunshine Coast, Sunshine Coast Council and Noosa Council are lead collaborators in this initiative that aims to attract, connect and support innovators across the Sunshine Coast region. 4. Connecting businesses to opportunities: To maximise government grants in the region, RDA Sunshine Coast is developing a grant-writing program. This will better connect local businesses to a grant-writing service, available grants and grant writing tips. This move is in recognition of the fact that Sunshine Coast small businesses, start-ups and not-for-profit organisations often do not have the time, funds and/or access to the skills, knowledge and resources required to submit competitive grant and funding applications.
