Network Dynamics & Field Evolution: Hubs, Clusters & Interorganisational Ties In Biotechnology

Grant number: LP0990478 | Funding period: 2010 - 2013



The study will support a robust biotechnology industry in Australia, which delivers economy-wide benefits and provides employment for local life scientists. Although Australia has a long history of innovation and achievement in the life sciences, commercial benefits in the field have often been harvested elsewhere. Australian governments are making substantial investments in biotechnology, including education and training, directed towards developing the local industry. The proposed study will make these investments more informed, facilitating fine-grained development of public policy and industry strategy.
