The Innovative Blueprint: Developing a more Innovative Australia

This project concentrates on taking a national focus and exploring how Australia as a nation could improve its innovative capacity.

Australia came 19th on the 2016 Global Innovation Index, a report which ranks 128 countries based on their results for innovation. With countries such as Switzerland, Sweden, the UK and other innovative countries at the forefront to become the world’s innovation hub, the research project focuses on identifying ways to create a more sustainable and innovative nation.

Australia needs to increase its innovative efforts in order to avoid falling behind. The Australian innovative blueprint has to be mapped out and placed on national agenda.

The Innovative Blueprint project

The scope of research within this project includes:

  1. Providing case study analysis by exploring how innovative countries, such as Singapore or Norway, manage the process, i.e. learning from the best in class.
  2. Exploring correlations in innovations in education and how they manifest into industry innovations.
  3. Assessing the impact of the duration of political cycles.
  4. Exploring ATO data regarding the impact of R&D concessions on innovation.
  5. Concentrating on the correlation between key conditions/assumptions and proven generation of innovation.
