Innovation is the key long-term driver of sustained and sustainable economic development. But it is more than just developing new products. It is about reinventing business processes and building entirely new markets that meet untapped customer needs. It is also about selecting and executing the right ideas and bringing them to domestic and international markets in record time.
GECA is please to support this SBA forum which will explore the role of Australian business innovation in building a green, clean economy with government, business and institutional experts. KPMG will conclude the forum with a synopsis of the funding and support available to innovation, highlighting the importance of recognising innovation as it happens and also provide an update on Government Grants and the R&D Tax Incentive.
