Innovation & Entrepreneurship in Australia
The Technology Innovation Management Review (TIM Review) is an international publication which provides insights about the issues and emerging trends relevant to launching and growing technology businesses. The TIM Review focuses on the theories, strategies, and tools that help small and large technology companies succeed.
This month’s editorial theme is Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Australia. The inspiration for this special issue arose during the ISPIM Innovation Summit (summit.ispim.org/brisbane2015/), which was hosted by QUT in Brisbane from December 6–9, 2015 under the overarching theme of “Changing the Innovation Landscape”. ISPIM (International Society for Professional Innovation Management) host international conferences where they invite researchers, industrialists, consultants, and public bodies who share an interest in innovation management. As it happened the event coincided with the launch of the Australian Government’s (2015) National Innovation and Science Agenda on December 7th.
The Agenda provides a framework for Australia’s new innovation policy, which is accompanied by $1.1 billion AUD investment over four years. In the wake of the collapse of the “mining boom”, the National Innovation and Science Agenda is designed to stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship, leading to an “ideas boom” that will (hopefully) lead to new jobs and growth.
Editor Chris McPhee consulted with national leaders in the Australian innovation space to contribute to the special June issue of TIM Review – Innovation & Entrepreneurship in Australia.
