There is no doubt that innovation is having a ‘moment’ in Australian political and business discourse. But if we are to successfully transition Australia’s economy for the future, we need more than a moment, and more than a buzzword.

Optimising Australia’s R&D landscape; reforming our approach to risk and entrepreneurship; transforming our scientific, digital and technological capabilities; and growing the industries of the future – these are all complex, weighty challenges, demanding not just significant investment, but genuine structural change. At the individual business level, too, innovation is increasingly essential for survival, but notoriously difficult to drive, measure and direct.

With this in mind, the Australian Financial Review is pleased to announce the return of its annual Innovation Summit.

The Innovation Summit’s objective is to go beyond buzzwords and platitudes, to really interrogate what needs to be done to create the capabilities, industries and mentalities Australia needs for the future.
