The Year of the Idea aims to shine the spotlight on ‘ideas’ as the first step towards innovation.

The initiative is being driven by the Australian Institute for Commercialisation (AIC) and was launched on Australia Day 2007.

A range of initiatives are planned throughout the year with the support of individuals and organisations such as former Australian of the Year Professor Ian Frazer who want to:

    • create a national push to change our ideas culture, to take ideas seriously
    • recognise Australian innovations that have changed our lives, and their origins as an idea
    • motivate Australians to appreciate the value of ideas and their effect on their everyday lives
    • encourage individuals, industry, research institutions and governments to turn their ideas into action
    • inspire collaboration towards the development of solutions to local, national and global challenges.
