Eliasson Delivers Research Seminar
10 July 2012
The School of Business took advantage of Professor Gunnar Eliasson’s recent visit to Australia and invited him to address a special school research seminar on Advanced Public Procurement as Innovation Policy: the Swedish Experience on 10 July.
Professor Eliasson is a Swedish scholar with an international reputation for his work on the economics of the firm and on the role of management, technology and entrepreneurship in economic development.
In addressing the seminar, Professor Eliasson focussed on the technological spillovers into the Swedish economy from the Swedish Gripen fighter aircraft program. A highlight of his address was the methodology he has developed for quantifying these spillovers, a topic of great interest to policy makers, scholars and firms alike.
The seminar attracted a diverse audience from the ADFA academic community, Australian government departments, state government agencies and Australian defence industry.
