On 22 January 2008, the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator Kim Carr, announced a wide ranging review of Australia's national innovation system to be conducted by an expert panel chaired by Dr Terry Cutler.
The establishment of the review recognises the vital role innovation plays in boosting productivity and international competitiveness, and re-iterates the Rudd Government's commitment to fostering innovation across the economy.
A Green Paper will be received from the panel by the end of July 2008, and this will be followed by a White Paper response from the Government.
The IMOS Director, Professor Gary Meyers on behalf of IMOS, wrote a submission for the review.
