Presenter: Dr Liana Williams

Research institute-private sector partnerships are promoted as a mechanism to increase the scale and sustainability of research impact, especially where government extension services are constrained. However, such partnerships often bring together partners with different organisational cultures, goals and values which can undermine development outcomes. This presentation shares reflections, challenges, and lessons learned from CSIRO’s experience in facilitating 8 research-private sector partnerships in Eastern Indonesia as part of a broader effort to stimulate innovation and support livelihoods of poor farming households in the region. A recording is available - contact us for the details.
