Innovation at work in NSW
NEW data from the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) shows innovation in regional business is alive and kicking.
The Canberra-based think-tank’s latest report, titled Innovation in Regional Australia – Spreading the Ideas Boom, showed one quarter of the nation’s 100 most innovative local government areas were based outside of capital cities.
“There are businesses in regional Australia which are fantastically innovative and there are other’s which need a real shake up but overall the picture is one of growth and there are some really high performers,” RAI’s general manager of policy and research Kim Houghton said.
RAI’s data showed there were several areas in regional NSW which ranked among the most innovative in the country.
