Supporting cooperation – first Research Roundtable Report

Supporting cooperation – first Research Roundtable Report

On 27 February 2019, the Centre hosted a research roundtable at RMIT University for regional researchers and policy-makers. Participants discussed the coherence of regional research and policy and the relationships between researchers and policymakers.

This Report reflects on the outcomes of the Roundtable. It considers the Centre might facilitate international cooperation between researchers and policy-makers working on initiatives to support innovative economic and social development in regions.

The Centre believes it can play a significant role in enhancing the contribution of researchers to improved regional policy, and to the debates about innovation. It can assist also in bringing Australian researchers more coherently into the international debates on these issues. The report of the Centre’s first Research Roundtable provides a clear foundation for this work and draws on the expertise of leading researchers on regions in Australia.

The Centre seeks to engage all Australian researchers and policy makers interested in regional issues and regional policy, and welcomes their response to the opportunities identified here.
