This discussion paper has been released to seek consultation on options to support the translation of research into commercial outcomes.
As part of its Industry Innovation and Competitiveness Agenda, the Australian Government will develop and implement a strategy to improve Australia’s economic performance through better translation of research into commercial outcomes.
Better translation of research into commercial outcomes will help drive innovation in Australia, grow successful Australian businesses and research capacity, and boost productivity and exports. It aligns with the Government’s measures to reform the higher education sector and to realise the potential of health and other research.
The Government is looking for input from the research sector and industry on the discussion paper and invites submissions by 28 November 2014 at 5.00pm AEDT.
