Innovation Into Results: Monetizing Australian Ingenuity

Share Article

Exciting New Innovation Management Training Program Propels Australian Innovators Into Global Manufacturing. A first of its kind innovation management training program has been launched by the Advanced Manufacturing CRC.

Understanding and applying innovation (the process of Innovation Management) is a critical success driver in today's manufacturing environment. However, despite the fact that Australia leads the world in rates of pure and applied research, it still lags behind in levels of commercialised technological output.

This disconnect is what prompted the innovation specialists at the Advanced Manufacturing Co-Operative Research Centre (AMCRC) to create a first of its kind innovation management training program they’ve dubbed ‘Innovativity’. Dr. Steven Trpkovski, Program Leader of Innovativity, outlined the goal of the training: “We aim to measurably increase the number of companies that are successful in taking their ideas to global manufacturing markets through more deliberate innovation. We aim to help our clients achieve the level of success of a Cochlear or a Resmed.”

Introducing Innovativity – Australian Manufacturers’ New Innovation Management Training Program

Innovativity is a comprehensive innovation management training program delivered by leading innovation experts from Australian industry. This hands-on training program is designed to help manufacturing start-ups through to large organisations more effectively manage the innovation process and achieve breakthrough commercial success.

“Innovativity gives Australian Manufacturers a true unfair advantage for achieving success in Global markets by equipping them with practical, real-world skills, tools and resources to develop, protect and commercialise technology, “ said Andrew McLellan, AMCRC’s Commercialisation Manager. “Innovativity is unlike other innovation training in that it focuses on the full spectrum of innovation management and on your execution effectiveness to ensure you achieve measurable commercial outcomes,” concluded AMCRC Managing Director, Bruce Grey.
