Your Say: Defence Innovation Review: innovation ecosystem survey
by ANZDD on 28-Sep-2021
The Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price MP, recently announced a comprehensive review of Defence innovation, science and technology to help ensure the Australian Defence Force has access to the most cutting-edge capability in the world.
Minister Price has appointed Mr David Peever to lead the independent review, and he has requested our support to invite CDIC stakeholders to complete a survey which will provide valuable insights for the review, and enable a better understanding of the interactions between Defence and the broader innovation ecosystem.
The survey can be accessed via https://web.esurveyservices.com/wix/p62363800.aspx?qgroup=B
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and the deadline for completion is 5pm on Friday the 8th October, 2021.
This is an important review which will examine the Defence innovation ecosystem in its entirety to establish how it can more effectively deliver home-grown, innovative capabilities for the men and women of the Australian Defence Force. It will also seek to:
- Strengthen and improve the links between academia and industry to solve Defence’s unique capability challenges;
- Simplify contracts to support more rapid acquisitions and transitions from concept to capability; and
- Establish how Defence-funded research and innovation can be more effectively commercialised to give Defence a unique capability edge
