11:00 AM CASE STUDY: Implementing an Effective Partnership Model For the Melbourne Connect Innovation Precinct to Improve Industry Engagement

Australia industry innovation collaborations are rated low on a multi-national scale which is creating a barrier for Australian universities. This barrier exists because the value of collaboration between Australian universities and industries are not clearly demonstrated. The success of these partnerships can be identified once the value is demonstrated; this success can provide new insights into the benefits for the university and the industry partner. Georgia Von Guttner explains how the University of Melbourne has implemented an effective model to engage Australian companies to collaborate.

In this session:
  • Explaining the purpose of the industry and commercial collaboration to determine the value 
  • The benefit of this collaboration to the university and the commercial partner to determine it’s effectiveness
  • How the university of Melbourne has invested more than any other university in Australia into commercial and innovation partnership strategies allowing them to have a successful model
