Boosting the Commercial Returns from Research discussion paper: IRU Submission

Research provides significant benefits for Australians, as individuals, businesses, and communities.

A research system, characterised by innovation, excellence and impact, needs sustainable support from government for universities to work with and respond to research end-users to deliver the benefits of research to individuals, communities and industry.

The Government has made clear its determination to expand the extent of industry driven research that achieves commercial returns as a critical part of its Industry Innovation and Competitiveness Agenda. IRU members are committed to improving industry driven research outcomes, building off their strong research output and capability.
