InnovationCAFE 2016: Your Invite to the Must-Attend Innovation Conference of 2016

I am pleased to invite you to join us for innovationCAFE 2016: Transitioning into an innovation-led economy.

Immerse yourself in a morning of innovation with presentations from local experts at our innovationCAFE 2016 event. Taking place in four cities across Australia, 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.
