New OpportunitiesInternational Collaboration opportunities with Temple University, USA

New Venture Institute

Flinders University New Venture Institute (NVI) will be hosting around 20 US-based academics from 15 to 24 July 2019, providing a unique opportunity for Flinders' researchers to develop international collaborations with US College academics from Temple University and other East Coast USA Colleges in the areas of innovation, internationalisation, advanced manufacturing, defence-led innovation and regional economic transformation.

There will be three main components of the visit.

These include:

  1. Global best practice innovation and enterprise experiential training, delivered by NVI Program Director Assoc. Professor Margaret Ledwith;
  2. Site visits to growth small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in Southern Adelaide and Western Sydney (in collaboration with UWS) focused on innovative manufacturing, internationalisation and regional economic growth;
  3. Comparative case study development with Flinders researchers on issues of business internationalisation, regional economic transformation, innovative manufacturing

NVI are currently inviting expressions of interest (EOIs: closing 28 June 2019) from Flinders' researchers who wish to be involved in exploring partnerships with these visiting academics with the aim to: co‐develop case studies; white papers; journal articles; conference and grant submissions. 

Successful researchers will need to be able to commit to a minimum of two of the following four sessions during the visit:

  • Monday 15 July 1:30pm - 5:00pm
  • Tuesday 16 July 11:30 - 1:00pm
  • Wednesday 17 July 11:30 - 1:00pm
  • Thursday 18 July 9:00 - 11:00am

Flinders' researchers will also be able to participate in site visits to local SME’s to hear about their journey toward internationalisation and the role of innovation in their development.

Temple University (Philadelphia, USA) have strong links with large defence primes in their region, and supply chain participation by growth focused SME’s has been a hallmark of their economy over many years. It is therefore anticipated that there will be interest in government‐led development through recent defence procurement, which parallels with Philadelphia’s own economic transformation. Temple's Enterprise Consulting Unit recent win of a US Department of Education Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) grant has opened up this opportunity for Flinders' researchers.

Please direct queries and EOIs to Ms Emily Canale, NVI CIBER Program Manager, referencing "CIBER Program JULY 2019" and your specific interest. EOIs close on Friday 28 June 2019.
