We’ve heard it too many times: Australian research and innovation is world-class, but we suck at commercialising new knowledge and technology… or words to that effect.Bad news may sell newspapers (or their digital equivalent), but we’re tired of negativity that fails to inspire change. It’s time to switch focus. The #AUSinnovates initiative will harness the power of social media to find and share success stories from research organisations and innovative companies around Australia.
We want to celebrate homegrown examples of commercialisation that may not have made headlines, but are making a positive difference. We’ll feature at least one story per week throughout 2018.
By sharing the lessons of experience and identifying the common elements in our success stories, we aim to promote more successful commercialisation and grow the new and improved industries on which Australia’s future wellbeing depends.
