Innovation - The New Norm

Innovation - The New Norm

Singapore is a leading model of innovation and incubation with start-up ecosystems growing at an astronomic rate, resulting in extraordinary breakthroughs in a variety of disciplines from technology, medicine, telecommunications and business.

Governments, businesses and universities each have a role to play in creating start-up ecosystems and in providing research based solutions to societal problems.

Macquarie University, through its Macquarie Park Innovation District, has launched an ambitious project to be a world-class, collaborative connector where researchers, entrepreneurs and some of the world’s most-recognised businesses come together to incubate creativity and find unique solutions to global and community issues.

Join Professor David Wilkinson (Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Corporate Engagement and Advancement) to hear from a panel of experts to discuss how incubation in business works, the role of the ecosystem for success and the role universities can play in driving an entrepreneurial environment.
