Summary

At CSIRO, Zoe leads the development of the IC Global Platform, which currently includes three key elements:

  • Expert Connect: a directory of Australia’s research expertise that has automatically compiled profiles for over 60,000 researchers from over 220 research organisations.
  • Innovation Challenges: government and businesses can post their innovation challenges and have them flagged with relevant potential problem solvers. This is being jointly designed by CSIRO, Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, IP Australia, and the ACT Government.
  • InnovationMap: a geographic visualisation of innovation related data, allowing users to create a rich innovation picture of a city, region, or state.
Expert Connect

Designed to boost industry-researcher collaboration, Expert Connect is a publicly searchable database of Australia’s research expertise. Profiles for over 60,000 researchers from over 220 research organisations have been automatically created by drawing on data from IP Australia, ARC, NHMRC, Web of Science and The Conversation. Any business person can search for a topic of interest (using simple, non-scientific language) and find the most relevant researchers to connect with.

More information on Expert Connect can be found here.
