The ABC show Q&A featured the topic of Innovation in Australia, featuring a University of Sydney research representative - Dr. Michael Biercuk. The program sparked interesting conversation regarding the national innovation statement, and whether the ratio of funding into university research and small stage start-ups is making sense.
The need of government support and investment into all levels of innovation from early stage start up Incubators and next generation technologies like Quantum Computers was discussed. Miriad Technologies, founded by University of Sydney researchers, also feels responsible to show active involvement in this conversation in future. Great to see that Australia is now seriously having this discussion to catch up to the rest of the world.
