GRID is about Giving Research and Ideas Direction.
Join the GRID
It’s a free LinkedIn forum and webinar series designed to foster innovation and commercialisation knowledge-sharing among members and collaboration across all industries. It supports the ongoing implementation of innovation and technology commercialisation activities, primarily among SMEs (small-to-medium enterprises).
You’ll need to have a LinkedIn profile to request membership to the LinkedIn forum. If you’re already on LinkedIn, visit the GRID Innovate Queensland group page here. You can participate in GRID webinars without joining LinkedIn. They are usually offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays between midday and 2.00 pm (Queensland time).
You’ll find recordings of previous webinars on the Innovate Queensland YouTube channel. GRID encourages anyone involved in innovation, commercialisation and product development to share their experiences, including:
- Business owners
- Managers (innovation, operational and technical)
- Innovation team leaders
- Researchers and scientists
- IP practitioners
- Commercialisation consultants
- University technology transfer professionals
- Angel and private equity investors
- Venture capitalists
- Government representatives
- and anyone else who wants to contribute to building Australia’s innovation-driven economy
Live and recorded online training sessions with innovation, commercialisation and business practice experts presenting their views and experiences on innovation implementation-related topics.
