[In]Sight – Innovation: Spreading the ideas boom

Start-ups, business accelerators, co-working spaces, entrepreneurs, new products and services and innovative businesses are emerging across Australia.

But what does Australia’s innovative capacity really look like?

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has partnered with the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) to reveal a fresh approach to measuring innovation capacity in Australia.

[In]Sight – InnovationSpreading the Ideas Boom, highlights the growth of vibrant and dynamic entrepreneurial communities in regional Australia and areas where conditions are ripe for innovation.

The index contrasts old measures of innovation focused on R&D and Science, with the Business Dynamo – the RAI’s new approach to measuring the commercial innovation environment in each region.

This new approach to measuring innovation reveals a diverse picture of innovation capacity in regional areas.
