As one of AURIN's High Impact Projects (HIP) our team has developed a measure of innovation, regional specific growth opportunities, and industry strengths and capacities, which will be made available via the AURIN Data Provider (ADP).
The project delivered four datasets:
- an Industrial Comparative Advantage dataset for SA2s in Australia, derived from the ABS Census data for industry of employment;
- a Knowledge Capability dataset for SA2s in Australia, derived from the Intellectual Property Government Open Data on patent applications, trademark applications, designs, and plant breeders’ rights;
- an Industrial Growth Opportunities dataset for SA2s in Australia, which links the Industrial Comparative Advantage dataset with AITI’s state-based model of economic complexity to identify product development opportunities for SA2s; and
- a Regional Innovation dataset for SA2s in Australia, which quantifies each region’s level of innovation based on patent output and the knowledge of workers in the region.
