Knowledge economies demand that we think differently. Perth has long been known as a mining and resources city – but can it also be a successful knowledge and innovation hub building on these and other strengths? How do we create the collaborations that will see our universities, government and the business community working together to create new knowledge industries to underpin our state’s economic future? The landscape of innovation and commercialisation is changing and we must keep pace.
