Creating effective innovation ecosystems - Dean's Lecture by Leo Goedegebuure

Innovation has always been a driver for socio-economic growth. With the shift from closed to open innovation the ecosystem analogy is quickly gaining prominence. Tertiary education institutions are key players in these systems, both as providers of new knowledge through the various forms of research they are engaged in as well as through the provision of highly skilled professionals.

This lecture will explore how our tertiary institutions can optimise their contribution to Australia’s innovation agenda. In particular, it will focus on differentiation and collaboration as the fundamentals of effective ecosystems.

Professor Leo Goedegebuure is Director of the LH Martin Institute for Tertiary Education Leadership and Management, Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Melbourne.
