Innovation happens when the ideas and resources of different organisations connect effectively. Systems are defined by their connections, and innovation systems link businesses with one another and with research organisations and government. Australia's innovation system is disconnected. We are insufficiently collaborative. We lack the strategies in business and universities to build the long term, trust based relationships that are essential for innovation leadership. This seminar poses the question of what can be done to improve collaboration from the perspective of businesses, research institutions and government?
Presented by Mark Dodgson, Director of the Technology and Innovation Management Centre at the University of Queensland Business School and Visiting Professor at Imperial College Business School, London.
