Review of the National Innovation System

The Review of the National Innovation System was a process established in January 2008 [ [ "Government announces Review of the National Innovation System"] , [ DIISR] media release, 22 January, 2008] by the Government of Australia and coordinated by an expert panel. Its purpose was to develop and deliver a green paper examining the Australian national innovation system.


The review was announced on 22 January 2008 by the Minister for the newly created federal government department responsible for innovation, and is linked to simultaneous reviews of the Automotive [ [ "Review of Australia's Automotive Industry"] ] and the Textiles, Clothing and Footwear [ [ "Review of Australia's Textile, Clothing and Footwear Industry"] ] industries. Its terms of reference included close consideration of the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program (paralleling the more specific O'Kane Review [ [ Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program Fact Sheet] ] ) and the Research and Development Tax Concession scheme, and it aimed to review "the coherence and effectiveness of existing Government support for innovation", to "identify gaps and weaknesses in the innovation system" and to "develop proposals to address them". [ [ "Review of the National Innovation System"] ]


The process began in February 2008 with a panel meeting and the panel Chair's speech to the Australian Industrial Research Group, [ [ Australian Industrial Research Group] website] continuing in March with a series of Stakeholder Consultation meetings [ [ "Innovation Review Consultation Sessions"] ] for research & academia, government, and business & industry, held in each of the State capitals in association with a "Call for Submissions" [ [ "Call for Fresh Ideas to Shape Australia's Future"] , [ DIISR] media release, 28 February, 2008] .

The Review considered over 730 submissions, conducted a series of focused workshops, and ultimately delivered its findings [ [ Media Conference To Release The Review Of The National Innovation System Report] ] in the form of a green paper entitled "Venturous Australia" [ [ Venturous Australia — Building Strength in Innovation (PDF)] ] on 09 September 2008. The government invited comment on the paper until 30 September, and intends issue a response white paper later in the year.
