The deadline for the national innovation review led by CSIRO board member Terry Cutler to provide its report to the Government has been extended by a month.

The review was expected to deliver its completed report to Innovation Minister Kim Carr today, but Cutler requested the extension because of the large number of public submissions received.

“We’ve had over 700 submissions and the panel is working through those submissions, and I’ve granted that extension for a month,” Carr says.

Cutler participated in SmartCompany’s Developing an Entrepreneurial Australia roundtable in June this year. The roundtable gave rise to a range of suggestions on the future of policy in the area and Australia’s next wave of multi-billion dollar industries.
