Advancing Prosperity - Productivity Commission
From: Thursday March 30, 2023, 5:30 pm
To: Thursday March 30, 2023, 7:30 pm
The Productivity Commission’s ‘Advancing Prosperity’ report, released on 17 March 2023, shows Australia falling behind globally, with labour productivity growing at its slowest pace in 60 years. This critically important issue has taken a back seat in recent years to more pressing matters like the Covid-19 pandemic and the rising cost of living.
You are invited to join us as Dr Lisa Gropp of the Productivity Commission discusses this report which has drawn some favourable and unfavourable reviews in the media.
Michael Falk is the chief economist for IP Australia where he leads its program of economic evidence and advice. He has a PhD in the management of technological innovation from Melbourne Business School, and a MA in publishing and communications from The University of Melbourne. Michael has over a decade’s experience in research, strategy and communications roles across government, academia and industry, including work on entrepreneurial strategy for Australian and UK digital media startups. He is an advisory board member of the Centre for Transformative Innovation (CTI) at Swinburne University of Technology and the Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia (IPRIA) at The University of Melbourne.
Michael will discuss opportunities and challenges for driving productivity growth through innovation, drawing on new evidence using Australian microdata. This includes evidence on innovation and dynamism, the roles of diversity in innovation, employee outcomes from innovation and their productivity implications.
Drinks available from 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start. Event concludes at approximately 7.30pm.
