Maximising the Economic Impact of Research through Collaboration and Commercialisation
Translation ● Technology Transfer ● Commercialisation ● Collaboration
Research Commercialisation and Collaboration continues to be a pertinent topic in the innovation ecosystem. Since the 2015 National Innovation and Science Agenda, increasing economic impact through commercialisation and partnerships has been a major priority.
Much has happened since then, with the review of R&D tax incentives in October 2016 and the revision of awarding grants – shifting the onus from publication to economic impact. However, although Australia is a benchmark for research excellence it is still a minnow when it comes to commercialisation and industry partnership. The Research Innovation conference returns with its second edition to gear up for the next step in driving economic impact.
With this in mind, Research Innovation 2017 programme will focus on building effective, mutually beneficial partnerships with insights from all stakeholders including research agencies, government, industry and universities.
