Collaborate | Innovate – Background
Collaboration is one of the most underestimated drivers of innovation, providing businesses who collaborate with a distinct advantage over the competition. In particular, businesses collaborating with the research sector gain access to a skilled and industry-ready workforce, the latest knowledge, technology and information, and are more likely to develop new ideas, products and services to take to market.
Collaborate | Innovate, hosted by the Cooperative Research Centres Association, is held annually to inform and inspire, to explore the importance of business and industry working with the research sector to create innovation, and how to foster these relationships. At the conference, you will hear from leaders in research collaboration in Australia and the world.
The conference is a valuable business and networking opportunity for those who attend, connecting them with captains of industry and leaders in their field, and provides sponsors with extensive exposure.
Collaborate | Innovate attracts upwards of 350 delegates over three days, including some of Australia’s most influential people in government, industry, and the academic and research sector. The Excellence in Innovation Awards Dinner attracts up to 350 people.
