Innovation in Regional Western Australia

Innovation in Regional Western Australia

On behalf of the Department of Commerce and in association with the Western Australian Technology and Industry Advisory Council (TIAC), Keston Technologies has completed a project to explore the factors that influence the success of innovation in regional areas of WA in order to provide recommendations for new strategies to stimulate regional innovation and add value to the State. This work is important as it is widely recognised that innovation is a key driver of economic development.

 

Through stakeholder interviews and associated surveys, the study collected information and evidence  to:

  • Identify a wide range of examples of both successful and unsuccessful innovations originating from regional areas of WA,
  • Identify factors that contributed to the success of these innovations and/or barriers encountered that limited or prevented the success of their innovations,
  • Identify the key locations of regional innovators and the factors that lead innovators to choose those locations,
  • Identify the key factors that underpin the success of innovation in regional areas,
  • Identify areas of focus that offer the greatest opportunity to stimulate innovation and add value to the State.
