The Australian Intellectual Property Report 2017 is now available
This week Assistant Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, Craig Laundy announced the fifth edition of our flagship publication, the Australian Intellectual Property (IP) Report.

Prepared by our own Office of the Chief Economist, this year’s report suggests more entrepreneurs and businesses are protecting their IP in Australia, with Australians filing 15 per cent more patents in 2016 compared with 2015. Research also found that that collaboration between Australian businesses and universities accounts for a significant proportion of Australia’s international patent applications.
