Australia in a global market of innovation

This presentation considers whether innovation in the railway industry in Australia or innovation originating overseas coming into Australia is being protected through patents. It looks at areas within the industry that are most patently active and at gaps in the industry that do not appear to be well developed or active in the patent field that could be fertile ground for successful innovation. Through 'patent mapping' this paper gives an indication of Australia’s innovation activity and place in the global rail innovation landscape, and will highlight how Australia is (or is not) meeting the challenge of the technological demands placed on its rail system. A focus is given to looking at the creation of Australian railway technology rather than solely imported technology, and the international presence that Australian innovation and companies in railway technology now have.
