According to the Office of the Chief Economist of the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Australia’s regional universities play an important role in regional innovation.
By surveying the senior management of regional universities and other organisations in Australia and internationally, this study has assessed how regional universities drive innovation.
Eight Australian universities having campuses in 29 non-capital city locations, across 24 RDA Regions were surveyed along with eight associated Australian organisations. International comparator organisations included 16 universities, 9 multinational companies and 13 other organisations.
It compiles a catalogue of strategies and mechanisms, employed by these organisations across thirteen focus areas.
