Industry Innovation and Science Australia (IISA) looked at barriers for small and medium businesses to commercialise innovative ideas in Australia.

The Barriers to collaboration and commercialisation report looks at these barriers through the framework of:

  • Australia‚Äôs industry structure 
  • industry capacity and capability to innovate
  • the efficiency of the innovation process.

We consulted industry and areas of government on this work. 

The report includes advice for the Australian Government on:

  • creating policies to grow medium businesses in targeted industries
  • better aligning small and medium business incentives to encourage innovation
  • measuring commercial outcomes and industry impacts.
