Overview

Yesterday’s headlines paint a gloomy picture for the future of investment in Australian research and development.

Innovation leaders are calling the cuts to R&D “mean-spirited” , “a stunning lost opportunity” and “a slap in the face” to Australian start ups, researchers, and forward-thinking corporates, with our own Ben Potter declaring “the national innovation agenda is dead”.

But in an increasingly competitive regional and global market, failure to innovate is no longer an option.

Will Labor policy provide the direction – and the funding – we need to ensure the next generation of great Australian technologies companies and industries? And what can Australian businesses and research organisations do to develop their own capacity for successful innovation?

At this critical juncture for the innovation community, the Australian Financial Review is pleased to announce our 2019 Innovation Summit, 29-30 July 2019 at the Sofitel Wentworth, Sydney.

Join us as we explore the concept of “ambidextrous” organisations and economies, that are able to balance the demands of the present with a vision of the future.

Who will hold that vision for Australia?
