Description

Collaboration for Industry Impact – Deep Dive Workshop

Time and Date

Day 1: 7 December 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Day 2: 8 December 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Price: $600 for non-members, $500 for members. Contact Jordan.Gardner@crca.asn.au for the discount code.

The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Programme supports industry-led collaborations between industry, researchers and the community. In its 27-year history, it has proven to be an effective model for linking researchers with industry to address R&D challenges with commercial outcomes.

Bidding for a CRC is a highly competitive process requiring cross-disciplinary teams to come together and collaborate. This takes planning, time and patience.

Developed by the CRC Association and Collabforge, this workshop (two half-days) will combine practical bid-creation content with a deep dive into the theory and practice of collaboration.

The workshop will teach participants what makes a great bid, what the process of bid development entails, the roles of all bid participants, and how to build effective relationship / communication between researchers and industry to develop a compelling bid. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to develop their ideas in conjunction with guidance materials and feedback, finishing with substantive parts of their bid concepts being fleshed out (these can be hypothetical CRCs, bids planned for submission, or even ARC Linkage type concepts).

This will help researchers to better understand how they can build successful partnerships with their industry partners, and form a bid concept that will deliver industry impact.

Attending this workshop will significantly increase the likelihood of a successful CRC or CRC-P application.

Thank you to the University of South Australia for hosting the event.


Who should attend:

  • Researchers who have the responsibility for or interest to develop CRC and CRC-P bids

  • Administrators who have the responsibility for helping coordinate, develop, approve and or administer CRC and CRC-P bids (eg from Commercialisation, Research, Scholarships, etc)

Key learning outcomes:

  • Improved capability in developing and progressing CRC bids

  • Understanding the role of ’impact thinking‘ in successful bids and CRCs

  • Common language, frameworks and methods for collaboration

  • Methods for stakeholder and partner analysis, tips and tricks for involving industry participants in the best way at the right time, and for developing and testing bid ideas

  • Generally improved collaboration capability through applied collaboration experiences with those in the room on the day

How it works:

  • Key concepts, methods and reference materials for successful CRCs and industry collaboration are presented across two, consecutive half-day sessions.

  • Participant ideas and plans are applied directly to the materials presented, with groups learning from one another, as well as receiving feedback from the presenters.

  • Both half-day sessions are appropriate for a general audience, as well as those developing specific bids, and we strongly encourage participants to attend both sessions.
