Centre for Transformative Innovation

Our research

The Centre for Transformative Innovation is Australia’s foremost research centre for studies on how ideas enhance productivity.

We undertake high-quality, independent and impartial applied research, and contribute to the development of public policy in Australia. We analyse the performance of business and industries.

We test why businesses do or do not choose to innovate. What are the repercussions of innovating? How can prudent government and corporate policy be crafted to optimise the type and level of innovation?

By emphasising clarity, robustness and veracity, we aim to identify stylised facts about society and the economy.

Our research is organised under the following themes.
