LH Martin - Study Mission on Innovation Eco-systems
Monday, May 30 2016
LH Martin Institute has an upcoming Innovation Eco-systems Study Mission 2016. This Study Mission follows the very successful Roundtable on Innovation and Applied Research held earlier this year in Canberra. With the launch of the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA) in late 2015, Australia has embarked on an ambitious innovation agenda, and while much of this is focussed on commercialisation of university research and linking universities to industry, an effective innovation agenda must take into account the different roles that diverse partners and institutions play in a true innovation ecosystem. A great deal can be learned from initiatives launched in other jurisdictions.
A number of European countries, cities and regions have taken up the challenge to build new prosperity, and are leading the way in developing innovation eco-systems; these are places proving the value of public-private partnerships where enterprises, government, and tertiary institutions collaborate to foster innovation and entrepreneurial commercial activity.
Three regions in two countries are showcased in the mission: Milan in Italy and Eindhoven and Enschede in the Netherlands. Milan and Eindhoven have both been nominated as European Innovation City for 2016, whilst the University of Twente, based in Enschede, once again has taken home the award of “Most Entrepreneurial University” in 2016.
The fee is A$8,500 + GST. The fee includes accommodation for 11 nights’ accommodation, meals, transfers (including inter-city) and activities during the official program. Participants need to organise and cover their own travel to and from Europe.
