The Centre's research focuses on developing innovative practices across a wide range of professions and organisations within the business and law sectors.
Sectors and research areas include tourism, infrastructure and engineering asset management, transport, logistics, public sector and local government, smart cities and organisational governance, strategy, management and policy.
The theme of the Centre is “Innovative Practice”. Professions and organisations need to continually innovate to avoid becoming obsolete. Innovation is typically about creating something new and original that has a significant impact on an organisation and the professions.
Innovation is also about developing new and better services, enhanced operations and management, improved processes and creating novel ways of understanding customers and markets. This broader view of innovation within the professions and organisations is a major focus of the Centre for Innovative Practice.
Researchers in the Centre conduct research into a wide range of topics. The Centre welcomes discussions with industry and government and the development of joint projects.
