Improving business innovation
Research shows that business innovation improves business performance. We help businesses to innovate, compete and grow by providing expert support, funding and incentives through the Entrepreneurs' Programme.
Our Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program supports Australian industries’ ability to compete and produce. We do this by helping industry partner with the research sector to solve industry-identified issues.
