Event description

The Innovation Papers brings together leaders from across the Australian tech ecosystem to present their ideas and frameworks for industry policy to build better outcomes for Australians.

The Innovation Papers is a hardcopy publication – in a newspaper format – that brings together policy papers from a cross section of the Australian research and business communities.

And The Innovation Papers [Live] is the public presentation of these ideas and frameworks at an industry leadership forum and networking lunch at The National Gallery in Canberra.

This is an event that brings together the different strands of the ecosystem. From manufacturing to software, from AgTech to renewables to satellites and space – our aim is to put different industry and research leaders in the same room.

This is where we can grapple with common challenges and common opportunities.

Join us. Meet your peers. And meet the policymakers.
