Business Innovation Spotlight

For three years, Government and research organisations have been partnering through the Boosting Business Innovation Program (BBIP) to create new ways for SMEs to engage with research and innovation. 

The Business Innovation Spotlight will showcase the successes and learnings from that partnership and welcome new businesses and innovators to join the community. 

Come and hear from businesses, researchers and government about what support is available to help you do what you do better.

Boosting Business Innovation Program

The NSW Government $18 million Boosting Business Innovation Program, in partnership with 11 universities and CSIRO in NSW, is delivering hard and soft infrastructure to help small businesses tap into the State’s world leading research organisations.
