About the SMART Region Proposal
Innovation is high on government agendas. However, the current focus is on innovation at a business, or city level. RDAMNC represents a region which comprises of two regional cities and many smaller townships. We believe that innovation has relevance across the entire region enabling collaborative partnerships between big cities and little towns, scale for procurement, sharing ideas, collaborative partnerships between local government and business. And importantly sharing an enterprising culture across the region. We believe the strategy has implications which will enhance innovation across Australia.
The purpose of the innovation is to create and drive collaborative partnerships across diverse regional communities. The strategy takes current government innovation policy into account and leverages what is happening against what is possible.
We will do this by looking at the strengths and potential of a whole region, synthesising comparable ideas, forming collaborative relationships and drawing together cross-sector partnerships.
