  • Australia India Institute Task Force Report
  • The Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) was commissioned by the Australia India Institute (AII) to administer a Task Force, to develop the report  Science Technology Innovation: Australia and India. The Task Force was led by Professor Robin Batterham AO FREng FAA FTSE, from the Australian side, and Dr Ramesh Mashelkar FRS FTSE, from the Indian side. Professor John Webb OAM, former Deputy Director of the Australia India Institute, was the convenor of the Task Force.

    The Report contains a set of commissioned articles on key aspects of the Task Force’s interest in innovation: the impact of globalisation, the international context, the challenge of inclusive innovation and of grass roots innovation, and the critical question of financing for innovation. The Task Force also undertook a series of interviews of senior research figures concerning their experiences and insights re international collaboration, either in a specific project or in establishing institution – to institution partnerships. The remaining chapter provides an analysis and commentary on the AISRF program.
