We Need More Case Studies.

Research by the UNSW Industrial Relations Research Centre has exposed a lack of case studies to help promote manufacturing in Western Sydney. 81 companies provided feedback on what is required for manufacturing to increase and most said there is a lack of studies on local innovation initiatives, market opportunities and general information on modern manufacturing. They also said there is a fractured approach to service provision which makes it difficult for manufacturers to know where to go for assistance. The study has recommended that a light house innovation-workforce development partnership be set up which would be a central point for gathering and exchanging information on areas such as innovation, technology and best practice.
