The key to successful innovation is collaboration. Collaboration enables groups with diverse but complementary perspectives to bridge the gaps between isolated research or business silos.
But collaboration doesn’t happen by itself.
There are many challenges. For a business seeking deep technological expertise, the first challenge might simply be: where do we start?
For researches, understanding the culture of an industry will be vital to any collaboration.
Collaborate | Innovate | 2019 is about breaking down those barriers and starting or improving on our collaboration to deliver better, faster innovation.
Businesses that collaborate with public research agencies are more profitable . The Australian Government provides hundreds of millions of dollars of incentives to encourage greater collaboration. Collaborate | Innovate | 2019 is an ideal way to identify opportunities for that support.
The program of Collaborate | Innovate | 2019 is packed with expertise on how to access funding; the best ways of collaborating, how to avoid the pitfalls in intellectual property and protect design and social licence.
Business, researches, postgraduates and investors are all encouraged to attend the most stimulating meeting on collaboration and research impact that will be held in Australia during 2019.
