CBR Innovation Network logo


The Canberra Innovation Network (CBRIN) launched in November 2014 on the back of a progressive local government and collaboration between Canberra’s world class education and research institutions, who now represent our Foundation Members. To date CBRIN houses and collaborates with 12 programs, has had more than 24,000 visitors and has helped more than 800 budding entrepreneurs and SMEs through its lean innovation focused education.

Canberra’s unique environment for collaboration, unrivalled to anywhere else; provides easy access to multi layers of government and industry leaders in science, research and education which makes this city a hotbed for innovation and business growth. In Canberra’s short history, there is a rich culture of innovation; from global inventions that are now incorporated in our day to day lives such as Wi-Fi, to leading technology enriching children’s education, including Mathletics and being the first jurisdiction in Australia to pilot semi-autonomous vehicles. This city provides an exciting environment that combines innovation and entrepreneurship with science and education that embraces challenges to break new ground.


Empowering entrepreneurs to make an impact and change the world.


Collaborating with six world-class research and education institutes in Australia, the Canberra Innovation Network is a unique addition to Australia’s innovative ecosystem.

The following organisations make up the Foundation Members of the Network:

  • ANU
  • CIT
  • Data61
