Biotechnology, Cybersecurity, Nanomaterials, Textiles, Food Production, Defence, Gaming and Entertainment, Off-grid Living, Communications, Intelligent Ecosystems, Wellness, if you can think of it, we can build the bridge between your passion and the world that can put it to good use.

Hosting the only academically integrated finance and innovation intelligence system, Melbourne Polytechnic is the first tertiary education institute to provide students and industry partners access to the world’s single largest global repository of innovation and analytics. The Centre of Applied Innovation’s proprietary linguistic and financial analytics capability enables the integration of complex foresight, data analytics and market intelligence.

Applied Innovation contextualises great ideas and places them into actionable contexts and situations. Far too often, the great ideas stay just that – great ideas. Until now, there was no standardised method to:

  1. Identify relevant contexts… into which creativity can achieve its greatest impact
  2. Link diverse communities… with similar interests, challenges or solutions
  3. Provide instant accessibility… researchers and businesses in over 168 countries to form just-in-time collaboration.
