There is a strong focus on the advanced manufacturing sector in Australia with investment through R&D tax incentives, grants, innovation labs and growth centres.
Advanced manufacturing is a source of competitive advantage and therefore also requires protection equal to that of innovative products and processes. Manufacturers need to consider the benefits to patenting research-generated IP and ensure their IP is protected in the country of manufacture, even if they do not intend to sell their products there.
Australia’s aerospace sector is also expanding rapidly with a renewed focus on aviation and space flight design and delivery. In an area punctuated by rapid technological innovation and intense global competition, organisations and inventors need to ensure their IP is both protected and maximised.
