The Centre for Transformative Innovation strives to improve Australia’s innovative capacity by understanding how ideas, inventions, and social networks enhance productivity. We were founded in 2014 as part of Swinburne's Faculty of Business and Law, with the goal of better informing the debate on public and corporate policy on innovation. We are multi-disciplinary, politically non-aligned, impartial and independent with strong links to other innovation-related groups and a focus on developing cross-disciplinary research collaborations that allow for the sharing of knowledge and ideas.
We aim to:
improve innovative capacity by understanding the processes through which ideas and inventions enhance productivity
be a global leader in research on technology and innovation for policy and management
be a focal point for researchers and policy advocates interested in studying how and why innovation occurs and what its effects are.
