Project Description


This project aimed to address the lack of collaboration between government, universities and industry to encourage innovation.


Data Story


We started by looking over various data set’s and settled on using the govhack 2018 IP data combined with OECD innovation data. We took the IP data, sorted by year of application removed duplicate names, and reorganised it by the number of IP applications. Looking at the data 1200 companies in australia had registered Patents in the last 10 years. These are the companies that it is recommended to target and contact first to build the community as they are the most likely to use this platform. For the website development, data was scraped from publicly available university webpages to find their available areas of research. OECD information was also used to ensure that this was a valid issue for Australia.
