Western Australia’s Minister for Innovation, Bill Marmion last night announced the launch of the state’s own Innovation Strategy at the Innovator of the Year Awards.
The NSW Government has opened public consultation on its new ‘whole of government’ Innovation Strategy, building on the Federal Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda to improve the state’s innovation ecosystem.
Today the Turnbull Government announced they will be spending $28 million on a taxpayer-funded advertising campaign that will sell its innovation policies to the nation.
The Government’s Innovation Statement overlooks corporate Australia and in turn will not address the key systematic deficiencies facing the Australian economy, according to a new report from strategy consultancy Crazy Might Work.
After months of talking the talk, the Turnbull Government is walking the walk with the launch of a National Science and Innovation Agenda that aims to inspire innovation and entrepreneurship in Australia. Today’s announcement, the Prime Minister’s first big policy statement, is heralding the start of an ‘ideas boom’. The mining boom has been great for Australia, Turnbull said, but it has inevitably receded, and innovation will now be the driving force behind Australia’s prosperity.
