Commercialising Government and Statutory Authority Innovation

When: Friday May 14th, 3pm - 5pm

Where: Karstens at CQ, 123 Queen St, Melbourne, Level 3


The outputs of innovation by government bodies often have un-realised value.  This seminar outlines appropriate and compliant approaches to"Un-Locking" this value.

 A framework for the identification of types of innovation will be been established, and the many and varied mechanisms for delivering value to your stakeholders will be explored (See below)

 The importance of "Unlocking" the Innovation outputs has been clearly identified by the Auditor General, Victoria.

"There is little in place to ensure that agencies are aware of IP owned under agreements, or have estabished mechanisms to facilitiatate use and access...This leads to a tendency for IP to be "Locked Up", and therefore it is less likely that it will realise its full potential as a public asset."
