The South Australian Productivity Commission has released an issues paper on Health and Medical Research and Development as part of an inquiry into its impacts on the state’s economy.
Many of our clients are heavily focused on research and development, and we play a role in protecting their interests in South Australia, nationally and overseas.
At the Productivity Commission’s request, Madderns provided assistance on the intellectual property aspects of the inquiry. The discussions related to the trends in research and development and the factors that influence the extent to which it contributes to long term productivity gains and economic growth in South Australia.
The commission has released an issues paper and submissions and responses have now closed. The SAPC is due to publish its draft report shortly.
