Business operators and industry leaders looking to innovate are connecting with researchers working on new technologies and government representatives who can assist the innovation process.

In June 2011, the Inaugural SEMIP Innovation Showcase brought local businesses, industries and researchers in the South East Melbourne region together with government representatives.

SEMIP is the South East Melbourne Innovation Precinct (SEMIP), an initiative that involves the Australian Synchrotron, the Victorian State Government, CSIRO, Monash University, Small Technologies Cluster and the Councils of Greater Dandenong, Kingston, Knox and Monash working in collaboration with industry.

The Innovation Showcase combined keynote presentations with smaller group sessions delivered by industry leaders and innovators. Professor Keith Nugent, the new Director of the Australian Synchrotron, was part of a panel that discussed ways to connect with local industries and partner with local innovators.
