Crafting Innovative Places: Panel and Book Launch
Building place-based innovation capacity to help Australia survive and thrive in a globalised knowledge economy.
Engage in a conversation about how government, business, university and community forge a collaborative approach to an innovative Canberra.
What role do cities play in incubating innovation? How does Australia stack up against places around the world known for their innovation? And how do the forces of globalisation, urbanisation, and innovation affect us in practice and policy-making here in Canberra?
Join Professors Edward J. Blakely and Richard Hu, authors of Crafting Innovative Places for Australia’s Knowledge Economy as they discuss place-making and the pursuit of place-based innovation with Kareena Arthy, the Deputy Director-General, Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate and Elizabeth Kelly, the Deputy Secretary of Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.
