STATEMENT LAUNCH TODAY; Industry Driven Research: Fixing the Disconnect

The vast disconnect that exists between research produced by universities and that used by industry is unnecessary. ‘Australia produces a high level of research. It has a low level of take up of the research produced and low levels of industry initiated research’ states a paper released today by Innovative Research Universities (IRU).

The first paper in the IRU Research System Series puts forward policy recommendations that enable industry, universities and researchers to integrate more effectively for the benefit of all Australians, individuals, businesses and communities; a critical part of the Government’s Industry Innovation and Competitiveness Agenda.
