On-line survey on innovation and industry collaboration in forestry research


Seeking input by on-line survey for research project on innovation and industry collaboration in forestry research

The objective of applied research is to contribute effectively to the innovation process, there by delivering sustainable and positive changes for the industry. Due to an attack on the web site my earlier survey site is no longer available so I have recreated the survey with a new service, for those that tries to provide their information and were not able to due to this problem I am very sorry and I hope you will make the effort again. My PhD research project will explore the role of end users - or industry engagement - throughout the research process in facilitating effective implementation and innovation.  To conduct this analysis, I am seeking a range of case studies from research providers or industry, including applied research projects that have been successfully implemented or that have led to innovation. I am also seeking case studies which have either failed or experienced difficulty reaching implementation.

which will take approximately 5-10 minutes of your time, per case you are able to provide.  Any and all cases you can provide will be greatly appreciated.  Material provided will remain completely confidential, and as presentations will focus on amalgamated analysis, individual projects, organisations or individuals will not be identified in any way.  Any supplementary documentation (study plans, reports, etc.) that could enhance my understanding of the case study can be emailed to mbrown2@usc.edu.au or faxed to Mark Brown at +617 5456 5544 with the project title as the subject.
