Date published:

The Australian Geography of Innovation entrepreneurship research paper explores the patterns of innovative entrepreneurship in Australia. It shows the distribution and concentration of business creation, research and development (R&D), patenting and trade mark activity across various regions of Australia.

In an Australian context, the paper attempts to answer:

  • Does high innovation activity overlap with high levels of firm creation? If so, in which regions does this occur?
  • Do research organisations or specific industry sectors significantly alter the distribution and levels of innovative entrepreneurship in different regions?
