Spreading smart ideas


Innovation is about much more than taking Australian inventions to market. Australia needs to capture opportunities in the global innovation system, and adopt and adapt innovations from elsewhere.

What are these opportunities? How well is Australia exploiting them at present? What should policymakers do differently to assist in these endeavours?

In this forum, presented by HC Coombs Policy Forum at the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy, an expert panel explores the policy challenges in exploiting today's commercially relevant technologies.

Panelists include: Dr Mark Matthews Executive Director, HC Coombs Policy Forum, Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU; Dr Jim Minifie Productivity Growth Program Director, Grattan Institute; Brad Krauskopf CEO, Hub Australia and Australia's Small Business Ambassador for 2013; Iarla Flynn Head of Public Policy, Google Australia.

This public forum is held in partnership with the Grattan Institute.
