Event Details

Immerse yourself in a morning of innovation with presentations from local experts at our innovationCAFE 2016 event. Be inspired and informed by relevant topics covering business-related areas of innovation.

If Australia is to continue to be a strong, sustainable, innovation-led economy, three interrelated pillars need to be aligned:

Productivity – Working closer with the university sector; considering an appropriate balance between access to ideas and products; innovation-led growth and investment.

Innovation Culture – Identifying, attracting, growing, retaining and mentoring the right talent (from as early as high school).

Commercialisation - Moving from an idea to a business.

Each session will be presented by leaders in their field and outline their personal experiences regarding issues, examples and opportunities relevant to each pillar.

Participants will: 

- Learn from practical industry leaders about the immediate challenges facing Australia;
- Take part in an interactive conversation with those leaders;
- Be given the opportunity to develop solutions to these challenges over breakfast and barista made coffee;
- Be given the opportunity to network with other like-minded professionals;
- Be part of formulating ideas that will form the basis of our paper to be submitted to Government.
