The recently launched Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) has started out on the front foot to move beyond the previously one-sided battles industry has fought with Defence over the loss of IP.

Kate Louis, First Assistant Secretary, Defence Industry Policy Division told Defence Connect that the CDIC saw the potential concerns from businesses when trying to do business with Defence and addressed the issue immediately.

“We have developed a new IP strategy for the Defence Innovation Hub, which seeks to achieve an appropriate balance between the commercial interests of industry and those of Defence,” Louis said.

“A fundamental principle of the IP strategy is that Defence will not seek to own IP created in connection with the Defence Innovation Hub unless there are compelling reasons to do so, such as national security.

Understanding and recognising the issues businesses, especially SMEs and academics, face when working with Defence is high on the agenda for the CDIC.

“Recognising industry as a fundamental input to capability is the recognition of the huge contribution that Australian industry makes to our war-fighting capability.

“Having Australian industry, including research organisations and smaller outfits, at the forefront of that consideration and right through the capability life cycle is critical to our planning and success.”
