Industry-university collaboration is high on the agenda in Australia. A new Prime-Minister new ministers in the education and innovation portfolios have re-invigorated the push for improving these partnerships, and a recently announced policy promoting an 'Innovation Boom' has put this front and centre on the national agenda. With the Prime-Minister rebuking some leaders in the higher education sector for being 'defeatist' and asking for more 'optimistic' approaches to developing collaborations (Q&A Session - Malcolm Turnbull and Glyn Davis, 2015), the focus on the role that universities play in reaching out to industry has never been so intense.
