CIIP's Babbage Policy Forum have launched a new competition seeking to elicit new, multi-disciplinary insights, analysis or synthesis to enhance the development of effective policies towards industrial innovation.
Awards of up to $10K, $5K and $3K are available for successful submissions.
The competition is open to all and the judges will welcome entries from early career as well as more established scholars and practitioners. The judging panel, drawn from the Babbage International Policy Forum, hope that submissions will address questions such as:
- How should policies to support industrial innovation be prioritised?
- How might policies to support technology and innovation be integrated to drive industrial competitiveness?
- How have lessons learned from COVID-19 influenced our understanding of the role of manufacturing in national economies?
- What particular insights from engineering, technology management and/or political science could enrich dominant economic frameworks with respect to technology, innovation and industrial competitiveness?
- What industrial innovation policymaking processes are best suited to dynamic environments?
- What institutional arrangements are needed to provide evidence for policies towards industrial innovation?
