Strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship research

Imagining business not as usual approaches to societal challenges
The Discipline of Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship brings together academia, business, government and civil society organizations to catalyse and research innovation and strategy-making for a sustainable future.

We are a diverse and inclusive group that is connected and engaged. Driven by ambitious standards of excellence, we produce impactful research and practical, actionable knowledge for business, government and society. Our work aims to:

  • inspire and equip leaders to create and capture opportunities to design and implement innovative strategies in their organisations.
  • shape the evolution of innovation ecosystems and contribute to policy dialogue in ways that advance the public interest
  • improve commercialisation outcomes for inventors and entrepreneurs both inside and outside academia
  • champion technological and social innovation towards the achievement of an inclusive and regenerative society.
  • partner with social and Indigenous enterprises to co-create culturally informed solutions to community identified challenges.
