This Week’s Highlight: Innovation Program Delivery Panel

Australian innovation has been the subject of significant government funding over the last 2 to 3 years. With a push for greater Australian capability, programs continue to be launched that encourage collaboration between academia and industry, programs that push for new ideas and that offer opportunities for commercialisation. This week we look at a facilitation opportunity issued by the CSIRO to establish an Innovation Program Delivery Panel. This panel will assist the CSIRO in its role as Australia’s national science agency and innovation catalyst.

Being a trusted research institution, the CSIRO works with every Australian university, government department and major Australian industry partners to enhance collaboration within the Australian national innovation system. The six national challenges CSIRO is focused on are:

a. food security and quality

b. health and wellbeing

c. resilient and valuable environments

d. sustainable energy and resources

e. future industries

f. a secure Australia and region.

As such, the CSIRO is seeking organisations with appropriate skills and experience to deliver and facilitate a suite of Innovation Programs. For each Program, successful Suppliers will be required to work collaboratively with key CSIRO Staff, to provide one or more of the Services outlined below:

– Design and Development

– Facilitation

– Coaching

– Capability Training

In developing responses Tenderers will be required to demonstrate their experience in leading design and delivery of Innovation Programs, advanced coaching capabilities, leading the development and application of specific toolkits such as Lean Principles, Design Thinking, and Business Model Canvas (BMC), assessing the Investment Readiness Level of participating teams and provide meaningful feedback on technology commercialisation. Delivery of these programs will need to be undertaken through proactive engagement with the CSIRO program management team, alumni teams and within other suppliers on the panel in order to ensure effective delivery of the program and respect to CSIRO principles. Experience in providing services within the 6 national challenge areas listed above is highly desirable and the programs will be rolled out nationally through face-to face engagement, COVID permitting.

The Contract is expected to run for 4 years and the RFT closes on the 4 October 2021.
